FIRST AID KIT - New Zealand show

"Blessed with the voices of plaid-clad angels." - The Guardian

First Aid Kit is Johanna and Klara Söderberg. In 2008, the exceptionally gifted Swedish teenage sisters caught the attention of music aficionados world wide when Fleet Foxes gave their nod of approval to the duo's stunning version of 'Tiger Mountain Peasant Song'. Audiences at some of the worlds biggest festivals have since been falling at their feet, and in a few short months it will be Australia's turn to be captivated by their crafty melodies and warm vocal harmonies.

Although they may be 17 and 19, their old souls seep through with narrative lyrics and acoustic, woodsy, folk inspired songwriting. In 2009, they were handpicked to release their debut EP Drunken Trees through Rabid Records, a label owned and operated by The Knife. The EP was reissued soon after through Wichita Records to include their Fleet Foxes cover and three additional songs performed live in a Swedish forest.

First Aid Kit's first full length album The Big Black And The Blue was released in early 2010, stemming the singles 'I Met Up With The King' and 'Hard Believer', both accompanied by beautiful, whimsical music videos. Proving their own material stood up alongside their much loved cover which has now notched up well over one million views on youtube, the album has been a critical success throughout the USA and Europe paving the way for tours all over the world.

Here's the video for the second single "I Met Up With The King" from their debut album The Big Black & The Blue.

And here's their cover of the Fleet Foxes "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" which caused such a stir:
