From their acoustic-folk beginnings 10 years ago in Stockholm, sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg have inevitably expanded their musical range as First Aid Kit with time and experience. The duo’s version of the bitter and bereft standard “Gloomy Sunday” has evolved from stark folk simplicity into a deeper, jazzier presentation that’s chillingly regretful and scarred with world-weary wisdom. The sisters are sometimes better known for the soaring harmonies they cast out live over covers of songs by Fleet Foxes, R.E.M., Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Leonard Cohen, but most of their albums are filled with their own tunes. They haven’t released a full-length record since 2014’s Stay Gold, but they’ve been recently performing a few songs from their upcoming album, including the steadfast and stirring love song “It’s a Shame” and the moody idyll “Fireworks.”
