Stay Gold

by First Aid Kit

Released on Columbia

Gone is the country influence, but left to stay is a greater helping of what made First Aid Kit so alluring in the first place; the harmonies between the sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg.

In interviews they've described the album as being their most personal one yet, and it certainly shows. Stay Gold offers up their most melodic, breezy, and carefree tracks to date and backs them with the force of a 13-piece orchestra.

It's bold yet tranquil, and after many collaborations, covers, and special guests, it's great to finally hear them standing on their own two feet.
