First Aid Kit release new “Tender Offerings” EP following on from official video for “Rebel Heart.” Check out the video at the top of this page.
Directed by Mats Udd, the eerie visual depicts the duo as the ringleaders of an entranced group of women while highlighting the song’s haunting harmonies.
First Aid Kit says: “Once again, we collaborated with our dearest friend and director Mats Udd. We wanted to create a dreamy and mysterious world. It’s an homage to old 70s horror films and the aesthetics of that era. ‘Rebel Heart’ was written in the desert after a night of experimenting with an Oujia Board and other occult-themed board games. We thought the video should reflect that. It’s a song about identity and femininity. It’s about the destroyer we all have inside of us, that dark force that wants to take over. We wanted to only feature women in the video – the red moon represents a sense of sisterhood.”
The Söderberg sisters today release ‘Tender Offerings’ via Columbia Records. The 4-track EP features songs that were recorded during the Ruins album sessions and are available both digitally and physically as a limited 10”.
In speaking about the EP, Klara and Johanna reflect: “When we went into the studio to record Ruins, we had a lot of material. Ten songs ended up on the album, but these four were left behind. Thematically they didn’t fit on a breakup record. However, these songs are very precious to us. It was important to make a home for them, physically and online, so here we are. We hope you enjoy these tender offerings.”
