New Releases From First Aid Kit And Dream Wife Need To Be On Your Radar

Swedish folk duo, First Aid Kit recently released their fourth full-length studio album titled "Ruins." The band's popularity has continued to grow since their debut album eight years ago. Their new 10-song release begins with the pulsating rhythm of "Rebel Heart" as the sister duo showcase their harmonies on the album's lead single "It's A Shame." First Aid Kit continue with their latest single "Fireworks" as the song's melody builds upon each verse. The acoustic folk strumming of "Postcard" and the quieter "To Live A Life" displays the beautiful songwriting without the need for any extra instruments. They finish up their new album with the country blues of "Distant Star" and the gentle sway of "Nothing Has To Be True."

First Aid Kit have been on the road since their album was released on January 19th, performing at sold out shows across the U.S. Plus, in April they will be performing at this year's Coachella Festival. To find out more about First Aid Kit and their latest release "Ruins," please visit

What began as an art school performance project has blossomed into one of the most anticipated debut albums of the year. The trio of Rakel, Bella and Alice met while in college and formed the band, Dream Wife. They created a Spinal Tap-type documentary explaining the band's backstory, with original songs that caught the attention of fans all over the world.

Their brand new, self-titled album will be released on January 26th and features eleven, high-energy, punk anthems, beginning with "Let's Make Out." The trio's 90's female punk/grunge influence is heard in the songs "Somebody" and "Fire," while "Hey Heartbreaker " sounds like a rally cry, with its addictive chorus. They keep the energy flowing with the nostalgic, new wave sound of "Kids" and the quick-hitting "Act My Age," before finishing up their new album with the alt-pop sound of "Spend The Night" and the driving rhythm of "F.U.U." Dream Wife will be hitting Australia in February, Europe in March and the U.S. in May. For a complete list of shows and to find out more about their new debut album, please visit
