First Aid Kit features a more refined sound than its predecessor, Viper Ethics, more care having been taken during the recording phase of the album's development. The album's sound contains less grunge, but remains edgy, setting the band's signature sound that has stayed with them in later albums such as their 2008 effort Magic Recoveries.
