FIRST AID KIT – ” Palomino “

Posted: November 3, 2022 in MUSIC

Johanna and Klara Söderberg were still teenagers when they showed up fifteen years ago with their beautiful version of “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” by Fleet Foxes. Not much later, the world lay at the feet of the Swedish sisters. Johanna and Klara Söderberg both have a great voice, but when the two combine their voices, something special or even magical happens.

Columbia Records release the fifth studio album by the Swedish folk sibling duo. Released four years after their previous album “Ruins”, “Palomino” is an 11 song album and features the singles ‘Angel’ and ‘Out of My Head’. Discussing their new album in a statement, the duo said: “this is the first record we’ve recorded in Sweden since we made our debut album “The Big Black and The Blue” 12 years ago. We worked with Swedish producer Daniel Bengtson at his lovely studio Studio Rymden in Stockholm. It was such a fun experience. We really let the recording take time, we didn’t want to rush it. It’s probably our most pop sounding record yet.” 

‘Palomino’ features the single ‘Angel’ which was released in June 2022 and new track ‘Out Of My Head’. It’s a reliably pretty and engaging collection that marks the Swedish folk duo’s first record since 2018’s ‘Ruins’, though they’ve released Don Henley and Leonard Cohen covers in the intervening time.
