Bio

First Aid Kit is a Swedish folk duo comprised of sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg. In 2014, the pair released their third record entitled Stay Gold, which featured "Silver Lining" - a song used everywhere from a Renault commercial to entrance music for UFC fighter C.B. Dolloway. Following this album and an exhaustive touring schedule, the sisters took some time off before releasing Ruins, their fourth full-length record. Capturing the essence of the album's title, Ruins took a different focus. The sisters expressed the hardships they faced between the two albums - from a broken-off marriage engagement to general sentiments of loneliness while recording in LA. Ruins closes the chapter on their toughest ride and brings First Aid Kit into the present, "integrating waltzing melodies and a few honky-tonk chords into sweetly sung tunes that sound lush and timeless."
