First Aid Kit is a Swedish folk duo that consists of the sisters Klara (vocals/guitar) and Johanna Söderberg (vocals/keyboards/Autoharp/bass guitar). When performing live, the duo are accompanied by a drummer, a pedal steel guitarist and recently a keyboard player. In 2008, they became internationally known by their YouTube video cover of the Fleet Foxes’s song “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” that gained significant Internet popularity. They have since released several albums, EPs and a handful of singles. In 2015 they were nominated for a Brit Award as one of the five best international groups.
First Aid Kit started touring in June 2022 and released the first single Angel from their fifth album Palomino. They played Glastonbury on 24 June and at the end of July they released a cover of Don Henley’s The Boys of Summer. Extensive touring in Europe and the US followed the album release.
