Single Review: First Aid Kit – Fireworks
First Aid Kit's latest single is a bittersweet folk odyssey, Music Critic Laura Mosley reviews
“Borrowing from classic 50’s ballads, this song is so emotionally-charged that it feels like it could be in the credits scene for any vintage movie
A sense of yearning can be heard through the lyric “Why do I do this to myself / Every time I know the way it ends?”. Borrowing from classic 50’s ballads, this song is so emotionally-charged that it feels like it could be in the credits scene for any vintage movie. Its nostalgic tinge lusts for hope - fireworks are a symbol of light and spirit but their image is fleeting, conveying the bittersweet nature of life and love and the loneliness it can leave you with.
'Ruins' is scheduled for release on January 19th 2018. First Aid Kit will tour the UK in February 2018, tickets are available here.
