First Aid Kit: I Met Up With The King
First Aid Kit are a Swedish (indie/folk) duo composed of sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg, whose close vocal harmonies and woodsy, folk-influenced songwriting take influence from the likes of Fleet Foxes and Joanna Newsom. Hailing from Enskede[disambiguation needed], a southern suburb of Stockholm, the teenaged siblings began composing songs in 2007. Their YouTube video cover of a song by the Fleet Foxes spread their name rapidly on the Internet.
The home-recorded “Tangerine” enjoyed airplay on Swedish radio in the summer of 2007, and the debut EP “Drunken Trees” expanded the duo’s audience upon its release in April 2008 in Sweden on the label Rabid Records, owned by the Swedish electronic duo The Knife. The London-based Wichita Records label reissued the EP one year later, bolstering its track list with a reverent Fleet Foxes cover and three additional songs performed live in a Swedish forest.
Their debut album “The Big Black & The Blue” was released on January 25th, 2010. [wiki]
