Music I Like: First Aid Kit (2007–)
A Swedish folk duo consisting of two sisters, Johanna and Klara Söderberg. From their sound you would never guess they were Swedish, though. They sing american-ish folk and country songs in a really soothing way, and their voices form some of the best harmonies I have heard. Their story is what modern technology has made possible: they uploaded themselves singing duettos on MySpace and were subsequently picked up by a record label. I was never really into this kind of music before, but instantly got a liking to their albums. I really recommend checking them out.
