First Aid Kit announce ‘Tender Offerings’ EP and share ‘Rebel Heart’ video

The new collection from the Swedish sisters is out next week.

First Aid Kit released their latest LP ‘Ruins’ back in January, and have now shared details of a new EP, ‘Tender Offerings’.

The four-track release will come out a week today (Friday 14th September) and comes alongside the band sharing a new video for ‘Ruins’ opener ‘Rebel Heart’.

Speaking of the new track and clip, the pair say: “Once again, we collaborated with our dearest friend and director Mats Udd. We wanted to create a dreamy and mysterious world. It’s an homage to old 70s horror films and the aesthetics of that era. ‘Rebel Heart’ was written in the desert after a night of experimenting with an Oujia Board and other occult themed board games. We thought the video should reflect that.

“It’s a song about identity and femininity. It’s about the destroyer we all have inside of us, that dark force that wants to take over. We wanted to only feature women in the video – the red moon represents a sense of sisterhood.”

We recently spoke to the sisters about ‘Ruins’, keeping things fresh and new material.
