Well since we are on some Nordic roll at the moment – let’s keep going. Today we introduce the Swedish sister folky duo, First Aid Kit.
After getting noticed on Youtube in 2008 by doing a cover of Fleet Foxes‘s Tiger Mountain Peasant Song they did so well they got invited to perform it with Fleet Foxes on stage in the Netherlands. And for good reasons, that cover gives me shivers. And if you feel they look young on that video, well that’s because they are. Johanna was just 18 years old and Klara only 15. Impressive.
Since then they released two albums: The Big Black & Blue in 2010 and last year The Lion’s Roar. Their latest was very well received and shot straight to number one in Sweden. The superstar sisters have toured across the world and been noticed by many big artist such as Jack White and Bright Eyes who collaborated with them.
