NEWPORT FOLK: First Aid Kit

“Blue”

I remember hearing about First Aid Kit years ago when they caught a lot of attention on YouTube for their cover of the Fleet Foxes tune “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song”. Since then, I haven’t been keeping up with the Swedish duo…but I poked around their catalog when I saw them on the Newport Folk lineup. I like most of what I heard from them, but this particular song is far and away my favorite! As always, these sisters nail the harmonies and there’s such a playfulness to the tune, despite the sad lyrics (and perfectly creepy video):
