First Aid Kit are determined to have you believe they hail from the vast American Plains, and their latest track, "Cedar Lane," will probably fool you. Listen above while sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg hypnotize you with their dreamy harmonies and an accompanying ethereal, Virgin Suicides-esque video.

The Swedish folk duo produce better Americana music than some Americans themselves, as evidenced by their critically acclaimed album, The Lion's Roar, released back in 2012. Stay Gold is the follow-up record to that, and from the sounds of "Cedar Lane" and the previously released "My Silver Lining," the duo are set to repeat that success. All of the songs were recorded at ARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska, so the countryside will definitely have an impact on Stay Gold's alternative folk sound.

Stay Gold will be released on June 10th, and is available for preorder on iTunes and Amazon. First Aid Kit will be on tour this summer to promote the album, and tour dates and locations are available on their official website.

First Aid Kit "Cedar Lane" Lyrics:

Rose after rose of passenger place
Headed out again, running all in vain
Motel blues, only bad news
I'm never looking for you
You'll find me all the same

I lie awake at night envisioning
A trace from the past
This heavy heart of mine, it never fails
To bring me right back

Now I see us walking down Cedar Lane
Slowing, the sunshine passed in the rain
Tremble so swiftly all of those days
I still remember how you used to say
Something good will come out of this

Coast after coast, cities and states
My world's an empty map where nothing remains
The place we belong is quietly gone
While we were making plans, it drifted away

I lie awake at night envisioning
A trace from the past
This heavy heart of mine, it never fails
To bring me right back

Now I see us walking down Cedar Lane
Slowing, the sunshine passed in the rain
Tremble so swiftly all of those days
I still remember how you used to say
Something good will come out of this
Something good will come out of this

How could I break away from you?
How could I break away from you?
How could I break away from you?
How could I break away from you?
How could I break away from you?
How could I break away from you?
How could I break away from you?
How could I break away from you?
