First Aid KitThe soothing harmonies of Johanna and Klara Soderberg, the Swedish siblings who are First Aid Kit, will be this summer at Somerset House when the pair bring their Scandi-country music to the picturesque courtyard. They first came to prominence with their 2008 YouTube cover of 'Tiger Mountain Peasant Song' by Fleet Foxes which has had over 3.5 million hits (and counting). And they more than a few celebrity fans with Jack White asking them to support him on his European tour last year, Patti Smith reduced to tears as she watched them perform her 1979 song 'Dancing Barefoot', and Paul Simon giving them a standing ovation after hearing their version of his song 'America'. With "themes of loneliness, loss and isolation" recurring in their songs, "there is an air of Scandinavian noir straight out of a Kurt Wallander novel" notes The Guardian.
