FIRST AID KIT
gorgeous 2009 debut from the swedish duo, the young sisters creating music that speaks of bygone times & old souls.
comprised of sisters johanna & klara söderberg (born 1990 & 1993, respectively), hailing from enskede, a suburb south of stockholm. this ep was 1st released in sweden on the knife’s label, rabid records. the emphasis is on narrative lyrics accompanying playful melodies with intense, dense harmonies. their sound is incredibly accomplished, irrespective of their youthfulness & although their music may not draw from the same sources as the likes of alela diane, the output is certainly in a similar vein & is incredibly affecting. a brilliant introduction to a duo that we hope have much more to offer. highly recommended. “blessed with the voices of plaid-clad angels” – the guardian, “beautiful, appalachian country meets 50’s pop” - the fly.
