First Aid Kit

Swedish sisterly duo, First Aid Kit, are a revelation. Johanna and Klara Söderburg, aged 19 and 16 respectively, claim this is music for the heart, not for the charts. They’re damn right and their charming dreamy ideals do nothing but make these young ladies dazzle amongst their heartfelt folk harmonies.

They’ve taken Sweden by storm and are about to embark on UK tours with fellow quirky folksters Slow Club and Fanfarlo to display their blissfully simple tunes that are so plain and honest in their delivery making them as infectious as a good bout of swine.

‘You’re Not Coming Home Tonight’ rings along with perfect precision as the girls aptly exhibit their bucket load of raw talent as they sing “the ship is sailing, I’ll meet you on the other side, the future’s unclear but hopefully it will be fine.”
