First Aid Kit premier “The Lion’s Roar” video


Watch First Aid Kit's new video for "The Lion's Head"

Swedish folk pop band First Aid Kit has released a new video for their song “The Lion’s Roar”. The video, directed by Mats Udd, follows the Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg through a mystical forest journey. Consider it a mix between MGMT’s “Electric Feel” video and something the Fleet Foxes would be at home in. Plus the Mike Mogis’ produced song is great in its own right.

“The Lion’s Roar” is available now via iTunes and the physical release will be out December 6. First Ait Kit will be releasing their second full length LP, also titled “The Lion’s Roar”, on January 24th. Check out upcoming tour dates below and our interview with them right here.
