About the artist
First Aid Kit is a Swedish folk duo that consists of the sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg. Their 2008 YouTube video cover of the song "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" by Fleet Foxes gained significant Internet popularity. As a result, they were signed to the Wichita label and recorded their debut album The Big Black and the Blue. When performing live, the duo are accompanied by drummer Scott Simpson and pedal steel guitarist Melvin Duffy. They have released three albums, two EPs and a handful of singles. In 2015 they were nominated for a Brit Award as one of the five best international groups in 2015.
