First Aid Kit is a sister folk duo from Stockholm, Sweden. The two sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg started their band in 2007. Klara is on vocals and guitar while Johanna is on vocals, keys and bass. While on tour, the sisters are accompanied with a live band. The duo is currently signed to three labels: Columbia Records, Sony Music and Jagadamba Records.
The sisters started uploading their music to Myspace in 2007 to gain some fan base. It wasn’t until 2008 when they released a cover of Fleet Foxes’ “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” on Youtube, that they were pretty known around Sweden. Overall, the sisters have released two EPs, three albums and a number of singles. Apparently, earlier this year the duo had been working on their fourth album, but it hasn’t been released yet.
