First Aid Kit share a delicate new song, It's A Shame

They have also just been announced on the stacked Byron Bay Bluesfest lineup for 2018.

Following up from the track they shared on International Women’s Day You Are The Problem Here, Swedish folk sister-duo First Aid Kit have a shared a new song titled It’s A Shame. Through all the shining harmony of both Klara and Johanna and the delicate guitar work, It’s A Shame touches on a tough time for the sister act, evident with lyrics like “In LA, the sun's almost too bright. I can not get it right. The emptiness I feel, and now none of this seems real.” The sisters explained It’s A Shame stemmed from the emptiness and desperation you feel after a relationship: “We went to Los Angeles last spring and spent five weeks there writing. It was a tough time for the both of us. We were in this beautiful, sunny place but mostly felt sad and lonely. It’s a Shame is a song about the emptiness and desperation you feel after a relationship has come to an end, how you will go to great lengths just to numb the pain and feel less lonely.”

We wish we had some more exciting news on when to expect a follow-up to their incredible 2014 record Stay Gold, but perhaps some tour news will numb the pain. If you by chance missed the announcement last month surrounding Byron Bay Bluesfest 2018 lineup then read on as we’ve got some exciting news that includes First Aid Kit for you. Joining the likes of Lionel Ritchie, Chic (with Nile Rodgers), Tash Sultana and stack more, the Byron festival welcome First Aid Kit back to Australia for the first time since 2015. No news on the sideshow front yet, but for further information about Byron Bay Bluesfest 2018 and how to get tickets, head on over here.
