Late Addition: We Talk With First Aid Kit About Stockholm For Sense Of Place
To complete our Sense of Place visit to Stockholm we talked with the charming Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit in Philadelphia just last week. Klara and Johanna Soderburg (she is the older) sat down to talk about their impression of Stockholm growing up right outside of it and the things they love now. They talk about early busking excursions to the city to finance new hair color and their early days. The duo was discovered when Fleet Foxes lead singer Robin Pecknold heard their cover of “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” on the internet. They tell a funny story about Robin unexpectedly inviting them on stage to sing the song at a Fleet Foxes concert. They lend their gorgeous sibling harmonies to a number of covers in this conversation.
