First Aid Kit’s third album, “Stay Gold”, was in many Top 50 lists at the end of last year.
Swedish siblings Johanna and Klara Söderberg grew up in a musical family--their father, Benkt, was a member of band Lolita Pop. Klara apparently wrote her first song when she was six.
The sisters got into music in a big way when they first heard American band Bright Eyes, which took their music in a distinctly country directions. Another influence, apparently, was hearing Alison Kraus’s haunting harmony rendition of ‘Down To The River To Pray’ on the Coen brothers’ film “O Brother, Where Art Thou”.
“Stay Gold” saw the sister expand their musical range with the introduction of orchestration, and the album had the likes of Andy Gill in The Independent enthusing about its “engaging, youthful and thoughtful folk-rock.” The sisters are joined on tour by a drummer and pedal steel guitarist.
