Song of the Day:The Lion’s Roar by First Aid Kit
Well this is amazing.
It clawed me in with the moody vocals with the folksy edge, then the twangy music just tipped it over the edge of awesome. And when it gets further into the track it just builds up and everything feels and sounds bigger.
It has a multitude of feelings to it, mournful, hopeful and ever so slightly painful. I love the strumming introduction to it too, it’s sets the tone of the track, truly addictive and it just draws you in more and it suits her voice perfectly. It gives the song a lovely feel, makes it seem more intimate.
Then there’s more introduced to it, it’s more than just the voice and guitar and it becomes so much more dramatic and climbs higher in my esteem the further it goes on.
Give it a listen, it’s highly recommended.
