Thanks to GoHeyJudy (visit her Etsy shop here) for introducing me to the sound of the immensely talented sister duo from Sweden, First Aid Kit. They have that singer-songwriter, times-gone-by sound nearly perfected. Here they are performing "Emmylou":
Can you say: new favorite song?
Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of country/bluegrass music, but their rising melodies are so hauntingly upbeat, and their artistry is well beyond their respective years--they're only in their late teens-early twenties. Needless to say, I am converted. Can't wait to hear more from First Aid Kit in the future.
