First Aid Kit: Tiny Desk Concert

Download Audio

12 min 4 sec

March 28, 2012 Composed of two young Swedish sisters whose charming, folk-infused pop music lulls and enchants, First Aid Kit nods to late-'60s and early-'70s bands like Crosby, Stills & Nash. Watch the pair perform three songs from The Lion's Roar.

First Aid Kit is two young Swedish sisters — that's Klara Soderberg on the left and Johanna Soderberg on the right — who make utterly charming, folk-infused pop music that lulls and enchants, with an obvious nod to late-'60s and early-'70s bands like Crosby, Stills & Nash. Their voices intertwine in that way sibling singers' sometimes do, with disarmingly lovely results, but the music remains distinctly alluring and adventurous.

The pair's new album, The Lion's Roar, takes a gorgeous journey, but as you watch this Tiny Desk Concert, it's clear that this is a duo worth leaving the house for — just in time for its North American tour, which begins in New York tonight.

Set List:
  • "New Year's Eve"
  • "The Lion's Roar"
  • "Emmylou"
