People came curious and left as fans when Swedish sister act First Aid Kit made its Vancouver debut Sunday night at the Media Club.
A new song, along with covers of Fleet Foxes‘ “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” and Gram Parsons‘ “Still Feel Blue”, rounded out the set of tracks like “Hard Believer” from the group’s debut, The Big Black and the Blue. Johanna (the younger sister, on keyboards) and Klara Soderburg (main songwriter, guitar), backed by a bearded drummer whose name I didn’t catch (my bad), easily charmed the crowd with pure, silky harmonies, self-effacing humour and cherubic grins (Klara), and with a brave and beautiful a capella number midway through the set. Definitely the best Swedish sister act to come through these parts in recent memory, and a must-see when First Aid Kit rolls through your town.
