First Aid Kit - I Met Up With a King

Sometimes, usually when I'm not even looking, I'll stumble upon a great band or singer. First Aid Kit is the fruits of this stumbling.

Hailing from Sweden (though they seem oddly Texan to me) the duo is made of two sisters. Their musical styling seems like a toned down version of american folk music, but with a more modern twist. Their lyrics are usually simple, but effective and usually harbor a deeper meaning.

Here is their single off their 2010 album: I Met Up With a King.

Let me know your thoughts.
