lovelovelove: First Aid Kit “Emmylou”

First Aid Kit consists of two gorgeous sisters from Stockholm, Sweden who make absolutely beautiful music together. “Emmylou” is the second single from their new album, The Lion’s Roar comes out next Tuesday, January 24th. I love their light, vintage, acoustic-folk sound, their effortless vocal harmonies, and their beautiful storytelling lyrics. They are playing at Union Transfer in Philly on March 31st! You can purchase tickets here. Their tour starts in February, so if you don’t live in Philly and love their music make sure you check out their tour dates here! Watching these sisters perform together is just inspiring, even when it’s on tv. Last year they performed Patti Smith and Ivan Kral’s “Dancing Barefoot” at the Polaris Music Prize ceremony, and brought Patti Smith, watching in the audience, to tears. How incredible it must have been to even perform that song in the same room, let alone have your performance move her to tears.
