Klara and Johanna Söderberg of First Aid Kit checked in with fans on the Swedish folk pop act’s blog at MySpace (@thisisfirstaidkit) on Wednesday (April 21), discussing their recent concerts – including SXSW, progress on new material, and having their first real tour with a drummer. They write:
We are now at home spending time with our dear family! We just wanted to thank you all for coming to our shows we’ve done now since February. It’s been so magical!
We are working on some new songs, listening to new great music (Laura Marling’s album is pretty amazing) and listening to old great music. (Townes Van Zandt – what a songwriter)
This was our first real tour with a drummer, and we must say me had so much fun, we loved every second of it. We toured all through the UK, must give a big shout out to the people of the city of Hull for being so god damn amazing! It is the best tour we have ever done to date, traveling through beautiful England and Scotland and meeting all of you was such a treat. Thank you.
