Single Review: First Aid Kit – I Met Up With The King (Wichita)

By | Published on Tuesday 2 March 2010

First Aid Kit

Swedish teenage sisters. Three words that must have brought so much happiness to so many men since the invention of the internet. There’s a purer talent on display here though, with Klara and Johanna Söderberg both so young, yet so adept in creating soulful, beautiful, simple music that soothes like a fireplace after a walk in the snow. A particular subtle highlight of their debut album, ‘I Met Up With The King’ aches with sibling harmonies, assured strumming and soft accompaniment, each purposely old-fashioned in its way. Two teenagers picking past elegance over modern bombast, and singing like it’s the most natural thing in the world. TM
