The Swedish band's new music video was shot in both Dublin and Wicklow.
In anticipation of their fifth album Palomino, First Aid Kit have released their new single 'Out of My Head', along with an ethereal music video shot in Dublin and Wicklow. It marks one of the first videos released by the Swedish sisters since 2018.
"It was written really quickly, almost like a stream of consciousness," Johanna and Klara Söderberg say, describing the single. "It's about being stuck in your own thoughts and desperately wanting to escape."
The majority of the video was captured in the beautiful fields of Glencree, Wicklow, characteristically shrouded in grey clouds with the band running around aimlessly in flowing pink dresses. The clip was directed by Jason Lester.
A few scenes depict the sisters mysteriously walking down the cobblestone streets of Dublin, faces illuminated only by the faint light of street lamps and fluorescent signs. The historic Henrietta Street was also put to use; the magical surroundings and 18th century buildings perfectly capture the dreamy essence of the song.

Musical inspiration for 'Out of My Head' came from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Kate Bush.
"We wanted the production to feel like a rock song from the 80's," First Aid Kit explained. "[This is] one of our favourite songs we've ever written and the most dreamy video we've ever made."
Palomino is set to be released on November 4th and is available for pre-order now. It’s produced by Daniel Bengtson and is the follow-up to 2018’s Ruins.
