Sydney Opera House and FBi Radio present

First Aid Kit

CONCERT HALL, 3 JANUARY

     

Following a recent sell-out Australian tour, First Aid Kit will bring their magnificent folk-pop to the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall on Tuesday 3 January. 

First Aid Kit are Swedish sisters, Klara and Johanna Söderberg. Since being handpicked by Karin Dreijer Andersson from The Knife to release their debut EP in 2008, their profile has grown in leaps and bounds. From receiving over 3 million hits covering Fleet Foxes on Youtube, to recording a single of Buffy Sainte-Marie’s 'Universal Soldier’ with Jack White at his request in Nashville, to extensive US and UK tours with artists such as Lykke Li and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst. Last year the duo moved Patti Smith to tears at the Polar Prize in Stockholm with a stunning rendition of her song ‘Dancing Barefoot’.

First Aid Kit’s second full-length release, 2012’s The Lion's Roar, continues to confirm their status as incredibly talented artists with a spectacular future. Topping the charts with glowing reviews, attests to one of the year’s most enchanting releases,  juxtaposing sadness and beauty in the best traditions of folk and country music.  Recorded in Omaha by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, She And Him, Monsters Of Folk), with guests including Conor Oberst and The Felice Brothers, the album sounds timeless from the dynamic opening title track onwards. The carefully constructed collection beautifully succeeds in setting references to their home town of Stockholm and long dark Scandinavian winters.
