New Music To Live To

Every now and then music gold comes along. A lyrical force to be reckoned with that makes you really take note of the world around you. For me this happened recently, and since then I can't seem to get enough of the folk / country influenced sounds of Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg, the duo known as First Aid Kit.

The haunting harmonies pull you in as their voices blend together within an entanglement of folk instrumentals and beautifully enchanting words. Just one listen will have you wishing yourself away, wandering barefoot through a sunlit forest, riding along a dessert road windows down wind in your hair, laying out on warm summer grass watching clouds stretch across an evening sky.





Having recently discovered and instantly fallen in love with their sound, I was beyond excited to explore their records and videos, finding a treasure trove of information, photographs, interviews and live acoustic sets, all solidly confirming their status as my new crush.


Just for you, my friends and music lovers alike, I present to you, your summer sounds and maybe even style inspirations!

If you're like me, and have this record firmly on repeat, then you can check out First Aid Kit's tour dates, you can purchase their records and even a band tee or follow their adventures on twitter and instagram, all via their official site.


I'm escaping to my favourite day dream, acoustic voices, swishing around imagining myself at Woodstock with flowers in my hair...

  3. I love First Aid Kit and I have all their albums on my ipod. There is something so magical about this type of music. I find this sort of music incredibly relaxing, if you like First Aid Kit I would recommend listening to Laura Marling and Sarah Jarosz, slightly different but equally has beautiful :) xxx

  8. Just poking around your blog archives and came across this post. I was wondering if you ever saw this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMrqBldlqzA First Aid Kit back in 2008 covering Fleet Foxes in the forest. Sends chills up my spine! Truly great.
