The women behind First Aid Kit have definitely grown and facilitated their sound over the years. The duo now on a major label have shaken from the folk label that once defined them to a more pop sound moving forward. With that the duo has a new album Palomino coming on November 04. Their new single “Out of My Head” is out now and as you stream it you can hear the change.
The beginning of the song has remnants of their past folky sound. However that soon changes with their upbeat drive. The song still has folk hints but has a more popular sound overall. It sounds good and they have a very soulful sound in what they’re doing. Their voices definitely hold onto a folk based sound. The way the song rolls out it’s closer to folk pop than anything else. The imagination and whimsy is still there and overtakes the song. Our input is that it’s quality no matter how you slice it.
The song can be heard above or wherever you stream music. Palomino can be preordered here before it drops on November 04 First Aid Kit is on tour starting August 15 at The Salt Shed in Chicago, IL until December 08 in London, UK at Eventim Apollo Hammersmith. Their tour can be trekked here.
