Random Stockholm-Seattle Convergence of the Month

23 September, 2008; 20:33 Leave a comment Go to comments

Every now and then something comes up that connects Stockholm and Seattle. This time it’s a band. Calling themselves First Aid Kit, two Swedish sisters, 15 and 17 years old, form a singing duo with acoustic guitar and piano, and they happen to cover recently-popular Seattle band Fleet Foxes‘ song “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song”.

The first crossover connection is the song. The second crossover is the fact that I just heard about this band for the first time last Friday from Swedish friends, then heard about them again today by Seattle’s best music zeitgeistists, Three Imaginary Girls. I’ll let them tell you more about First Aid Kit.
