Swedish duo First Aid Kit will make their Columbia Records debut with Stay Gold on June 6.
Sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg have created this ambitious 10-song collection of originals. Recorded at ARC studios in Omaha and produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Monsters of Folk), the duo also enlisted The Omaha Symphony Orchestra to play on the record, with arrangements by Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, Broken Bells, Rilo Kiley).
The Söderberg’s began composing songs as teenagers in 2007. Emmylou off The Lion’s Roar was chosen as a ‘Single of the Year’ in 2012 by Rolling Stone. They have performed on Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, and shared the stage with artists including Jack White, Lykee Li, and Bright Eyes.
The Swedish duo have performed in Falls Festival and a sold out national tour in 2012.
