First Aid Kit is a Swedish folk duo. Their 2008 YouTube video cover of the song “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” by Fleet Foxes spread their name rapidly on the Internet. The sisters subsequently appeared alongside Fleet Foxes performing the song in a concert in the Netherlands.
In 2007, the duo signed to Rabid Records, a label co-owned by the Swedish electronic duo The Knife. April 2008 saw the release of the debut EPDrunken Trees in Sweden, rereleased the following year by Wichita Records. During their early years the duo had a collection of songs posted on the social networking site MySpace, one of which was “Cross Oceans”, a re-recording of which later appeared on Drunken Trees.
