The Swedish duo First Aid Kit, two sisters that famously covered Fleet Floxes’ “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song,” have released the video for the third single, “Fireworks,” from their upcoming record Ruins. “Fireworks” follows “Postcard” and “It’s A Shame,” with the video directed by Mats Udd. Clearly inspired by the 80’s, the two sisters attend a prom with an abrupt and ambiguous end.
“We’re thrilled to release the video for ‘Fireworks’,” First Aid Kit wrote in a press release, We’ve always loved the idea of American high school proms, but never got to experience one in real life. It was incredible to get to recreate one in our hometown of Stockholm with director Mats Udd. Aesthetically it’s such a different look from our previous video – it was fun to go full 80’s mode. We got to dress up our friends and our mom in full on retro looks. We had a blast shooting this video and found out ‘Fireworks’ is a great song to slow dance to.”
