First Aid Kit: Tiny Desk Concert

First Aid Kit is two young Swedish sisters — that's Johanna Söderberg on the left and Klara Söderberg on the right — who make utterly charming, folk-infused pop music that lulls and enchants, with an obvious nod to late-'60s and early-'70s bands like Crosby, Stills & Nash. Their voices intertwine in that way sibling singers' sometimes do, with disarmingly lovely results, but the music remains distinctly alluring and adventurous.

The pair's new album, The Lion's Roar, takes a gorgeous journey, but as you watch this Tiny Desk Concert, it's clear that this is a duo worth leaving the house for — just in time for its North American tour, which begins in New York tonight.

Set List:

  • "New Year's Eve"
  • "The Lion's Roar"
  • "Emmylou"
