Tune Of The Day- First Aid Kit

An amazing Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit released  their new song “You Are the Problem Here” on international women’s day in awareness to sexual assault and rapist’s indulgent punishment.

In a Rolling stone artificial Klara and Johanna Söderberg said in a statement that the song was not their typical sound, “It’s angry and direct. It’s a song written out of despair … After reading about yet another rape case where the perpetrator was handed a sentence which did not at all reflect the severity of his crime we felt upset and vengeful. We were, and are, sick of living in a society where the victims of rape are often blamed for the horrible thing that has been done to them.”

The song is powerful and I found it very moving, so here it is on my tune of the day. If you have a song that has moved you please comment it.
