A song that's been receiving lots of airplay on BBC 6Music lately, enough for me to become totally seduced by this incredible song... 'The Lion's Roar' is the title track of the second album by the Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit.
Written by sisters Klara Söderberg and Johanna Söderberg, the song was released as the first single entering the Swedish Singles Chart at #38, and then rising to #34 the following week.
Hailing from Enskede, a southern suburb of Stockholm, the siblings began composing songs in 2007.
In January 2012 the band released their second album, The Lion's Roar, produced by Mike Mogis.
The album was critically acclaimed upon release and went straight to No. 1 in Sweden on the week of release and No. 35 in the UK.
