We have featured Americana here many times before (too many ......  that's enough of that - Ed) and Americana from Canada and Britain. Today it is the turn of Sweden
First Aid Kit comprises of sisters Klara (vocals and guitar) and Johanna (vocals/keyboard/autoharp) Söderberg 
They started out in  their native Sweden since 2007  shooting to international fame in 2008 with their You Tube version of Fleet Foxes - Tiger Mountain Peasant Song

This led to a record deal (first with Wichita and then Columbia) and they have since gone on to record three albums the middle one of which from 2012 is The Lion's Roar

Here is the title track from that album together with This Old Routine.

First Aid Kit - The Lion's Roar

First Aid Kit - This Old Routine

I was going to give you the brilliant Emmylou but I have featured that before
They are older than their years


  1. Great duo - my mate is obsessed with them.

  2. Emmylou brings tears to my eyes every single time.

  3. Yep - they really are quite something. Older than their years as you say.

  4. Among my absolute favourites of the 21st Century. Can't wait for their new album.

  5. these are rather good.....
