Like most of you, we discovered First Aid Kit over the internet. Their live one take cover of the Fleet Foxes’ Tiger Mountain Pleasant Song gave the impression of two young, comfortable, relaxed musicians, effortlessly talented and warm in front of the camera.
We just missed out filming in Sydney but made it happen in New York. Amidst the chaos and excitement of CMJ the sisters met us in Washington Square Park and gave us four songs in just half an hour. All around us people enjoyed one of the last sunny days of the season; jugglers, dog walkers, students, hawkers, tourists, buskers and artists filled the park with its usual landscape of lively activity. The girls were interrupted a number of times by fans and one lucky guy even had a song dedicated to him; Our Own Pretty Ways. Enjoy.
