First Aid Kit.
Indie band from Sweden.

First Aid Kit

Authenticity and honesty have come to characterize the music of First Aid Kit. It has the feel of forest folk songs, full of enchanting storytelling, and even a sense of compelling, ancient mystery. Their cover of Fleet Foxes’ “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” has gained much press as of late, and the sisters that comprise the group as planning a full-length album released in September of 2009.

This group is made up of two girls, aged sixteen and eighteen, and by listening you’d never know it. Their music is mature beyond expectation, though there’s still the beckoning of a childhood you’ve yet to live in every song. Though their Fleet Foxes cover is exceptional, their original material should not be disregarded, as it is like a freshly laundered sheet during the summer: sweet, innocent, and smelling of sunshine.
