First Aid Kit, ‘Wolf’ Video

September 19, 2012

First Aid Kit WolfThe third official video for First Aid Kit’s The Lion’s Roar is here with perhaps the most cryptic offering yet from this run of ritualistic imagery. For their new deluxe-edition single, “Wolf,” the Söderberg sisters bring elements from both previous worlds together — following up their tribal march through dark woods on the title track and conjuring the ghost of Gram Parsons and friends in the Joshua Tree-set “Emmylou” — by singing from a hand-built altar before burning the whole thing down. Perhaps their description of the tune could steer us in the right direction:

It’s about our destruction of the planet. But it’s also about finding the animal within you. Because we know that underneath that polished, civilized exterior there is definitely a wild creature longing to howl or roar.

Watch First Aid Kit lure their spirit animal from the forest of Järvsö, Hälsingland in Sweden above.
