First Aid Kit first came into my consciousness through a couple of covers – firstly through Kingswood covering ‘Wolf‘, and then through First Aid Kit themselves covering Jack White’s ‘Love Interruption‘ for Triple J’s Live at the Wireless.
Back in March First Aid Kit toured the east coast in some of their biggest headline gigs, as well as a slot at both Golden Plains and WOMADelaide. Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg command attention with their strong and beautiful harmonies, hair swishing and keyboard pounding, and don’t let your mind once wander from the performance in front of you. The stunning Palais was the perfect backdrop for their folky blues and the sold out crowd were enraptured from the moment the women entered the stage.
If you’ve never seen First Aid Kit make sure you catch them next time they’re here. They are currently on a bit of a break while they write some new songs and “see what happens”. Lets hope they hit our shores again really soon.
