First Aid Kit — Swedish folk duo
Soderberg sisters Johanna (1990) and Klara (1993) were born in Stockholm. Both girls loved singing since childhood. Klara wrote her first song when she was just six. In 2005, Klara’s parents bought her a guitar. The aspiring artist easily learned how to play it.
The two girls made a decision to sing together and came up with a name for their duo. It came from the first words that they randomly pointed to in a dictionary. That’s how First Aid Kit appeared. Young girls wrote and sang their own songs. They preferred the folk genre.
In April 2007, they started uploading their songs to the MySpace account. The same year, the sisters sent their song “Tangerine” to the Stockholm radio, which immediately played it. The duo became popular and many fans tried to book First Aid Kit for their events. They also got a few offers from the recording labels.
In October 2007, the girls gave their first concert in PUNKTmedis youth library in Stockholm.
