Swedish alt-folk duo First Aid Kit – Hailing from a southern suburb of Stockholm, Klara and Johanna began composing songs as teenagers.
They released two studio albums with Wichita Records – The Big Black And The Blue in 2010 and The Lion’s Roar in 2012 which featured breakthrough single Emmylou. Rolling Stone quickly named it one of its ‘Singles of the Year’.
They followed their early success with 2014’s Stay Gold and, four years later, Ruins – which hit Number 3 in the UK album charts and featured the stunning singles It’s A Shame and Fireworks.
NME’s four-star review of Ruins stated: “It is a lush, expansive release that uses the siblings’ uncanny blood harmony to full effect, elevating their low-key folk songs into something majestic.”
Twice nominated for Best International Group at the BRIT Awards, Klara and Johanna last year released their wondrous live tribute to Leonard Cohen – Who By Fire – which again won widespread critical acclaim.
First Aid Kit’s sensational live shows – at which they are backed by a full band – are famed for being emotionally-charged affairs, packed with incredible songs, astonishing harmonies and singalong anthems.
This year they hit stages across Europe, USA, Canada as well as festival appearances at Glastonbury and Bristol Sounds.
