Sometimes when two sisters make music, they accidentally make magic.
The Swedish folk duo, First Aid Kit, is made up of sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg. With voices as smooth and harmonious as an angel’s, these two sisters tug at the heartstrings. “Fireworks” seems to tell the story of an unrequited love. The perfectly dissident harmonization between Klara and Johanna works to emphasize the pain behind the lyrics.
I love everything about this song from the melancholy undertones to the whimsical “ooh’s” playing in the background. A song as short and sweet as this deserves to be played on loop so go ahead and treat yourself.
