Still in their teens, Swedish duo First Aid Kit comprises sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg. They produce a sound that belies their tender years and purvey a collection of spine-tingling songs that have drawn comparisons to everything from Joan Baez to Bon Iver. Having wowed a handful of small UK festivals last summer it’s apparent that they’re on their way to patching up everybody’s wounds with their enchanting forest folk.
Their last single ‘Emmylou’ was a radio hit getting playlisted on Radio 2, 6 Music and Xfm and scored ‘Record of the Week’ plaudits from Edith Bowman and Mary Anne Hobbs. Together with their latest album The Lion’s Roar entering the top 40 in the UK and selling 100,000 copies worldwide in the first six weeks of release (and a number 1 spot in their home country Sweden which has since gone Gold) First Aid Kit have had a phenomenal year, reflected by their Spotify streams reaching an unprecedented 7.3 million hits.
