First listen Review:
by STEPHEN THOMPSON, June 01, 201411:03 PM ET
•   Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg first made their names with feather-light chamber-folk confections that echoed the soaring sweetness of Fleet Foxes. A cover of that band’s Tiger Mountain Peasant Song even helped launch the then-teenagers to YouTube fame back in 2008. But in 2014, styles have changed and so have the Söderbergs: First Aid Kit‘s major-label debut, Stay Gold, moves well beyond the portentous prettiness of the pair’s 2012 breakthrough, The Lion’s Roar.
•   The music is lighter on its feet and less haunting, but the lyrics have picked up some additional heft along the way: “I’d rather be broken than empty / I’d rather be shattered than hollow,” the Söderbergs sing in a particularly barren moment from “Shattered & Hollow.” Their vocals still ring out sweetly, but there’s a welcome edge to their delivery throughout the record that digs deep. Even when a song like “The Bell” never accelerates beyond a lightly lilting amble, there’s potency to it.
•   First Aid Kit could have easily gotten stuck in a sullen rut, opting for stately beauty over the versatility showcased here. But Stay Gold is a statement of staying power; a collection of bright, smart, substantial songs that stick around. By the time the Söderbergs rustle up a bit of countrified rowdiness in “Heaven Knows” — a sure set-closer at the band’s concerts for years to come — they’ve fully reset expectations. First Aid Kit’s music has always been charming, but the duo has found the capacity to thrill, too. Fortaken: http://www.npr.org/
Artist Biography by Andrew Leahey
•   First Aid Kit are a Swedish duo comprised of sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg, whose vocal harmonies and woodsy, folk-influenced songwriting take influence from the likes of Fleet Foxes and Joanna Newsom. Hailing from suburban Enskede, the siblings began composing songs as young teenagers in 2007. The home-recorded "Tangerine" enjoyed airplay on Swedish radio later that summer, and the debut EP Drunken Trees helped expand the girls' audience upon its release in April 2008. The London-based Wichita Records reissued Drunken Trees one year later, bolstering its track list with a reverent Fleet Foxes cover and three additional songs performed live in a Swedish forest. The duo then set to work on a full-length album, balancing schoolwork with the recording sessions. The Big Black & the Blue was released in 2010, followed by Lion's Roar in early 2012.
