First Aid Kit - "You're Not Coming Home Tonight" - mp3s
Try listening to this song only once. It's like Lay's potato chips, you are always coming back for more. We posted on First Aid Kit, a long time ago. They first appeared on the scene and became a viral video sensation with their amazing take on the Fleet Foxes' "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song." Fleet Foxes were breaking at the time, and these young women, in some long gone Swedish forest, distinctly captured the essence of the tune. Their voices were perfect, and everything lined up just-so for First Aid Kit to become minor internet celebrities. Now Klara & Johanna Söderberg, now ages 16 and 19, have returned to the forest to film a more professional take on their lovely song "You're Not Coming Home Tonight." Somehow, these Swedish sisters have managed to channel the rural south, (much like our fave Tallest Man) through their music. Yet, again, it's all about their harmonies. Much like Gram and Emmylou, or Gillian and David, their voices seem to meld into one, at once arresting and addictive. First Aid Kit will release their EP Drunken Trees (which is great) stateside soon. More details to come.
