I am really excited about the new album being released Tuesday by First Aid Kit.
This retro sounding folk country duo is made up of 2 sisters from Sweden, Johanna and Klara Söderberg, who started out singing covers from bands like Fleet Foxes and Bright Eyes. Johanna, born in 1990, plays keyboard and auto harp. Klara, born in 1993, plays the guitar. They both write and sing.
First Aid Kit's first release was the EP Drunken Trees, in the fall of 2008. Their first full length album, The Big Black & Blue, was released in 2010. They currently have an extensive tour scheduled in support of their latest release "The Lion's Roar".
Here is the video for their single Emmylou, which is itunes current single of the week.
