It seems as if pretty girls singing in sweet voices, are fast becoming Sweden’s major export (Lykke Li anyone?). Joining an already impressive invasion into the indie scene are two sisters from a suburb of Stockholm. The duet of Johanna and Klara Söderberg gained an impressive audience with their YouTube cover of a Fleet Foxes’ Tiger Mountain Peasant Song. From there on First Aid Kit, as the girls named their duo, continued to gain popularity, enjoying frequent airplay on Swedish radio. The culmination of their work so far, is titled “The Big Black & The Blue”. To think that they are just 20 and 17! Their cover of Fever Ray’s “When I Grow Up” is just mind blowing!

Listen to it:
