in need of a first aid kit

by georgia frances king

These sisters will fix any ailment with their soothing folk harmonies - perhaps that's why they called themselves First Aid Kit. When they visited us last year for the first time, they eased us into the biggest Swedish pop frenzy since ABBA, minus the white lycra and synchronised dance moves. Going from relative obscurity to sold out shows in under a week, these girls may only just be over the legal drinking age, but they sure know how to enchant a crowd. Here is what started it all. We've just heard word that they're coming back in March, and guess what - frankie magazine is sponsoring! They'll be playing gigs in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as well as Golden Plains Festival and Womadelaide. Find out all of the details here. They also have their sophomore album, The Lion's Road, coming out on January 27th, so it's looking like it'll be a very healing year.
