#3 European Folk: First Aid Kit

Photo: Neil Krug
These Swedish youtubers rose to fame when viewers poured over their cover of Fleetwood Foxes' Tiger Mountain Peasant Song and even performed with the American folk group when they toured in the Netherlands. The teen-ish sisters have released two critically acclaimed albums and 5 successful singles. Unlike Daughter, they're really folk. So if you don't like old classic country music...then stop reading now.

I found them on youtube too, somewhere under related videos (I think I was watching Birdy sing Skinny Love). The Söderberg sisters' new album features darker lyrics all tied with the bow of southern twang.

Listen to 5 of their tracks below including their title single The Lion's Roar.
