After the announcement of their brand new sophomore album, Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit previewed the title track "The Lion's Roar" shortly after. Well now that track's also got a video. Filmed in Stockholm by Mats Udd, the video features the sisters in a kind of medieval tribal garbs with a militaristic band of drummers trekking through darkened fog-laden forests and alternating scenes of the girls in elegant dresses rowing out to the middle of a lake on a bright sunny day to find a trunk hidden at the bottom of the lake. Not much of the plot is explained but it's hardly necessary. The video is beautiful shot and looks straight out of an fantasy epic or a Swedish fairy tale. Enjoy the video for "The Lion's Roar":
First Aid Kit's sophomore album The Lion's Roar is due out January 24th.
