New music this month from First Aid Kit. On January 19th, the Swedish sister folk duo released Ruins, a dynamic album with soul-filled tracks. This is the Soderberg sisters’ first album since their 2014 breakthrough release Stay Gold.

After relentless touring and writing for that album, Klara and Joanna were exhausted and burned out, so they took some time off. The Chicago Tribune called this break a “divorce.” Fueled by Klara’s breakup, Ruins delivers sultry beats and harmonies.

First Aid Kit is touring now. They will be in the Midwest in early February, at The Riviera Theatre in Chicago on February 2nd, and St. Andrews Hall in Detroit on February 3rd.
