First Aid Kit - 'Wolf'

Before introducing this video for First Aid Kit's latest single, I must mention how amazing they sounded at The End of the Road festival earlier this month. Their cover of of Simon and Garfunkel's 'America' really was sublime. They also recorded a session for BBC 6 music's Mark Riley show around the same time and I highly recommend you listen, you can find it here.

The video for their new single called 'Wolf' was shot in the forest of Järvsö, Hälsingland in Sweden. The band has commented that the video is “about our destruction of the planet,” “But it’s also about finding the animal within you. Because we know that underneath that polished, civilized exterior there is definitely a wild creature longing to howl or roar.” I love the harmonies and the racing rhythm of the drums, also any band that gets the words "Shape Shifter" into a song are OK by me. Seriously though, they are obviously at a great creative point in their career and I believe that they still have a lot more to give. Amazing.
