Heavenly harmonies from the Swedish sisters.
When Stockholm sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg shared their cover of the Fleet Foxes song ‘Tiger Mountain Peasant Song’ in 2008, few could have predicted the impressive trajectory of their career. Evident in this early cover, however, were their trademark harmonies.
When you write a song called ‘Emmylou’, it’s probably not a secret that you’re a fan of Emmylou Harris. First Aid Kit know their heroes, and they know their strengths. Whether in folk or Americana territory, their disarming harmonies are delivered with sincerity and charm.
Despite their love of American country music, First Aid Kit – like their early heroes Fleet Foxes – have remained a crossover band. This is evident on their list of collaborators that includes Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes, R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and members of fellow crossover acts Wilco and Midlake.
Whenever First Aid Kit release new music, the world becomes a more pleasant place. Whenever you experience them live, it’s a warm embrace of your soul.
