First Aid Kit

Single: First Aid Kit — I Met Up With The King

Liane Escorza says: “The first time I ever saw First Aid Kit play was at the Slottsfjell festival in Norway last year. I didn’t know about their sound back then but I was lured into the promise of a fresh and captivating act. And so it was. The soft harmonies of these two Swedish sisters melts the toughest heart, perfectly balanced with dark and mature lyrics. They are the long-lost counterparts of Fleet Foxes but stripped totally bare.”

End of the Road line-up proper swoon-worthy

End of the Road has a very special place in the hearts and minds of the FFS collective, as it was at this splendid festival last year that we began spreading the love that is our website. EOTR 2008 was just lovely – small, brilliantly curated and covered in fairy lights and ribbons.
