    The Swedish duo First Aid Kit, has released a new single, "You Are The Problem." In recognition of Women's Day, the song brings attention to men who commit sexual assault. The tough topic is angrily performed, with emotions of rage and a sense of frustration. Unlike their previous folk tracks, the duet are doing something different, adding more power and giving it a rock vibe.

    The band stated via their Facebook page:

    "Today is the International Womens Day and the theme of the year is #BeBoldForChange. 'You Are the Problem Here' isn't a typical First Aid Kit-song. It's angry and direct. It's a song written out of despair. After reading about yet another rape case where the perpetrator was handed a sentence which did not at all reflect the severity of his crime we felt upset and vengeful. We were, and are, sick of living in a society where the victims of rape are often blamed for the horrible thing that has been done to them. Our message is clear and should not be controversial in the least: if you rape, you are the problem. Alcohol is not the problem. So called 'youth culture' is not the problem. You are. And you always have a choice."
