Hailing from a southern suburb of Stockholm, Klara and Johanna began composing songs in 2007. Initially signed in 2008 by The Knife-owned label Rabid Records, First Aid Kit have gone from faraway teenage fans covering Fleet Foxes to releasing an EP and two full-length recordings—2008’s Drunken Trees EP, 2010’s The Big Black & The Blue, and 2012’s highly praised The Lion’s Roar, which was recorded in Omaha, NE, produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk), and released by Wichita Recordings. Their heart-wrenchingly beautiful song “Emmylou” was chosen by Rolling Stone as the magazine’s #10 ‘Single of the Year’ in 2012. And just last fall, the sisters performed the song on the Late Show with David Letterman. First Aid Kit has toured the globe, sharing the stage with artists including Jack White, Lykee Li, and Bright Eyes, and has performed at festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Newport Folk Festival, and Austin City Limits.
