I love postcards! I have even collected a load of Victorian postcards of our local area in London (Tottenham) and I have them framed up our staircase. I’ll send a spare one of these I have 🙂

I have just read the terms for participating in this project And if I in any way have misinterpreted these terms I'd be very happy if anyone corrected me. First of all, only fans who are "legal resident" in US, Canada, Australia, UK or Sweden are allowed to participate. And in addition, as no copyrighted material is allowed, they must make the postcards themselves, because purchased postcards are always copyrighted. You or Sony Music Entertainment MUST go out and clarify the rules. Otherwise you may risk losing fans because of this.

Look how spectacular they are! They want postcards from their people! So awesome!

Dave Creaney should I send them the Eggleston Thanksgiving meal postcard from you??

Nathan Rooney SCREAMING SCREAMING SCREAMING

Even for asking a postman... You're so good !

Is it possible to send one to a Dutch address?

They are very fortunate to be from such a great country, ❤️✌️

Two Christmas Angels if there ever was 🎼🎶😇😇😍😍

Merry Christmas ladies. I love you're music. It is amazing.

You will receive one from Ecuador 🙂

Love you girls and the music you do 😚😚

Chani Bouchie send one from vegreville!

Katie Creelman I’m going to send a postcard

When u want to participate but u live in asia....

About FIRST AID KIT:
Swedish duo First Aid Kit shares the music video for their fantastic new single “It’s A Shame.” Directed by Mats Udd, “It’s A Shame” takes sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg through a Sliding Doors-like journey through the streets of Stockholm. Johanna’s world couldn’t be sunnier, while Klara’s is anything but, beautifully illustrating the bright yet desperately empty themes of the song.

First Aid Kit

Bittersweet is the word the Söderberg sisters prefer. “We like bittersweet songs, songs that affect you differently depending on how you interpret them,” says Klara, the younger of the Swedish siblings that make up First Aid Kit. “Making the melodies and lyrics head in different directions is very deliberate,” adds big sister Johanna. “A song like ‘Emmylou’ sounds cheerful, but the lyrics are the saddest thing you ever heard.” First Aid Kit’s first US-recorded album, The Lion’s Roar, juxtaposes sadness and beauty in the best traditions of folk and country music. They even cite the Louvin Brothers’ cheerfully brutal version of the old murder ballad “Knoxville Girl” as the perfect example of the sweet and sour they adore. And this new carefully constructed collection deftly succeeds in setting references to their hometown of Stockholm and long, dark Scandinavian winters against a backdrop of country-rock swing. Initially signed in 2008 by The Knife-owned label Rabid Records (they are now signed to Wichita), First Aid Kit have gone from faraway teenage fans covering Fleet Foxes for fun to recording a Blue Series 7-Inch single of Buffy Sainte-Marie’s “Universal Soldier” with Jack White at his request in his Nashville, TN Third Man Studios. “I think of it now as like a dream, too good to be true,” says Johanna of the session, happily and hurriedly squeezed into last autumn’s tour schedule. Where 2010’s debut The Big Black and the Blue was starkly intimate, The Lion’s Roar, recorded in Omaha by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, millions more), is a full band record. The girls’ father Benkt takes the bass, Mattias Bergqvist drums, while Mogis and Nate Walcott of Bright Eyes, and a cast of Omaha-based musicians round out the sound. From the dynamic title track onwards, the album is a rich and stirring affair that expands upon the keen and sophisticated country-tinged pop of their debut. “Emmylou” name-checks such greats as Gram Parsons, Johnny Cash, June Carter, and of course Ms. Harris, yet for all its upbeat appeal, it recognizes the sadness in the lives and art of these heroes. “We’ve listened to those people for a very long time. We hadn’t even toured America when we started writing that song,” confesses Johanna. “We actually finished it in Australia,” adds Klara. The gorgeous, timeless “In The Hearts Of Men” adds mellotron alongside more expected textures. “My duality awakes,” sings Klara in the lush, knowing “I Found a Way”. The exquisite “Dance to Another Tune” perfectly conjures a haunting sense of unease, while the lovely, steady cadence of “This Old Routine” tells a plaintive, yet redemptive, tale of loves lost and re-found. “To A Poet” opens side two, so to speak, and its elegant coda, featuring a string quartet arranged by Walcott, particularly impressed the Söderbergs. “We recorded our last record at home. We couldn’t even have fit them all in,” says Klara. Despite its lonesome sound, “New Year’s Eve” – all distant reverb and atmospherics – is “actually very hopeful”. Finally the exuberant hoedown of ‘King of the World’ features The Felice Brothers, just passing through town during the session, and local hero Conor Oberst, who sings the last verse. “We’d never worked with a producer before,” says Johanna. “Yet we never disagreed with Mike about anything.” The resulting record is serious fun, yet First Aid Kit are only starting. “We want to work in music forever. Our voices and songs could work in many genres,” says Johanna, “We don’t know how we’ll sound in ten years time.” But which do they prefer singing, sad or happy songs? They roar with laughter. “We only sing sad songs.” There will never be a shortage of those, and in First Aid Kit’s hands, they will always sound nothing short of glorious.

First Aid Kit se forme en banlieue de Stockholm en Suède en 2007, sous l’égide de deux soeurs, respectivement nées en 1990 et 1993, Johanna et Klara Söderberg. Très influencées par le folk, Fleet Foxes et Joanna Newsom, les Suédoises commencent à composer en 2007 puis signent avec Rabid Records (le label de The Knife) en 2008, date à laquelle elles sortent une reprise de Fleet Foxes intitulée « Tiger Mountain Peasant Song ».
Le groupe vient de dévoiler un premier single tiré de leur nouvel album RUINS prévu pour le 19 janvier (Columbia) et annonce une tournée européenne dont une date parisienne le 5 mars à la Cigale !
« Ce super duo indie-folk suédois sortira bientôt un album, et compte tenu de cet extrait country-rock ensoleillé ‘Dylan/Emmylou Harris’, il va être excellent ». Rolling Stone

Support: Van William

Swedish Folk-Duo FIRST AID KIT will be heading back to Germany in March 2018. The release for their forth album "Ruins" is set for January 19th, revealing some brandnew songs of the band.

---

Das schwedische Folk-Duo FIRST AID KIT ist im März 2018 für zwei Termine zu Gast in Deutschland. Am 19.Januar 2018 werden sie mit "Ruins" ihr bereits viertes Album veröffentlichen.

Die Musik von FIRST AID KIT kann wohl am ehesten als Akustik-Folk oder Indie-Pop beschrieben werden. Es ist eine Kombination aus weichen Melodien, zarten Gitarrenklängen und den sanften, melancholischen Stimmen der Schwestern, die aufgrund ihrer engen Beziehung zueinander perfekt zu harmonieren scheinen. Ihre Texte handeln vom Leben: von dem, was sie persönlich bewegt und von dem sie glauben, was junge Erwachsene in ihrem Alter ebenfalls bewegt. Damit wirken sie authentisch und überaus glaubwürdig.


Auf ihre Debüt-EP „Drunken Trees“ aus dem Jahr 2008 folgten die LPs „The Big, Black & The Blue“, „The Lion’s Roar“ und 2014 mit „Stay Gold“ ihr letztes Album das, wie seine Vorgänger, von der Presse hochgelobt wurde. Nach jahrelangem Touren brauchten die Schwestern anschließend erst einmal Abstand von der Musik, um sich mehr auf sich selbst und ihre Beziehung zueinander zu konzentrieren. Nach fast drei Jahren Pause sind FIRST AID KIT nun zurück - ihre aktuelle Single heißt „It’s A Shame“ und wurde Ende September veröffentlicht. Ihr neues Album "Ruins" erscheint am 19. Januar 2018 und handelt von Verlust menschlicher Beziehungen und dem Hinterfragen seiner Selbst - und klingt gerade deswegen umso echter und glaubwürdiger. Im Frühjahr 2018 sind die Schwestern auf Welttournee, mit zwei Konzerten in Hamburg und Berlin im März.

*** UTSÅLT ***

Med sin säregna stämsång och ljudbild av folk, country och americana har First Aid Kit blivit ett av vår tids mest älskade band – och en av landets största internationella framgångar. Nu står det klart att First Aid Kit släpper sitt efterlängtade nya album "Ruins" den 19 januari och i samband med det beger sig ut på en omfattande turné. Vi är glada och stolta över att kunna presentera ett stopp i Malmö i vår – 12 mars på Malmö Live Konserthus!


Med 2014 års album ”Stay Gold” sålde First Aid Kit guld i England, platina i Sverige och nådde förstaplatsen på Sverigetopplistan. Nya albumet "Ruins" är producerad av Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Laura Veirs) och spelades in i Portland, Oregon där duon samarbetade med flertalet fantastiska artister – Peter Buck från REM, Glenn Kotche från Wlico och McKenzie Smith från Midlake. "Ruins" innehåller bl.a. första singeln ”It’s a Shame” och "Postcard”.

First Aid Kit säger själva: “’Postcard’ är en låt med ett väldigt traditionellt sound och vi ville att produktionen skulle spegla det. Det är ingen bitter låt, snarare vänder den sig till en älskare, för att önska dem välgång på sin resa, samtidigt som man måste släppa taget.”

“Ruins” är uppföljaren till "Stay Gold", som med sina tio smakfulla och ambitiösa låtar på ett vackert sätt fångar deras livfulla historieberättande och hyllades som en av 2014 års bästa skivor. I våras släppte duon också en singel på den internationella kvinnodagen, ”You Are the Problem Here”. Det är en stark, passionerad och arg låt som vänder sig mot vågen av våldtäkter och en del av intäkterna doneras till Women for Women International.

First Aid Kit turnerade nyligen i USA och spelade där på festivaler som Austin City Limits och Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, och utöver detta även konserter i Los Angeles och avslutningsvis en slutsåld konsert på New York City’s Town Hall. År 2018 inleder First Aid Kit med att åka ut på en omfattande turné i USA och Europa. Turnén inkluderar en spelning på Malmö Live i mars – missa inte!

Oslo Spektrum Arena
Sonja Henies plass 2
Oslo,  0185 Map

Den 13. mars kan du oppleve den suksessrike, svenske søskenduoen First Aid Kit i Oslo Spektrum Arena!

Med deres unike countrysound, samstemte stemmer og tekster som mange kan kjenne seg igjen i – er det ikke rart at søstrene har gjort stor suksess.

Søstrene Johanna og Klara Söderberg, startet sin karriere med å legge ut en cover av Fleet Foxes’ ”Tiger Mountain Peasant Song ” på YouTube. Til tross for deres unge alder har søstrene rukket å gi ut hele tre album. The Big Black &The Blue (2010), The Lions Roar (2012) og Stay Gold (2014). Sisnevnte mottok strålende kritikker og nådde 1. plass på VGs albumliste. Albumet toppet også albumlisten i Sverige og solgte til gull i England. Siden har søstrene turnert verden rundt, og levert strålende opptredener.

De vant Nordic Music Prize i 2013 for det beste albumet i året som gikk.

”Låtskrivingen er delikat, melodiene tidløse, vokalharmoniene hjerteskjærende vakre. Det er en varme her som stråler ut fra Skandinavias hjerte. Samtidig sniker det seg under huden på den amerikanske drømmen, på en måte bare utenforstående kan klare å få til. Spesielt de to,” skrev juryen i sin begrunnelse.

I anledning den internasjonale kvinnedagen i 2017 ga søstrene ut ”You Are the Problem Here”, etter å ha lest om et seksuelt overgrep og voldtektsmannens lette straff. ”It´s A Shame”, som kom ut i september, er kanskje det første, klare tegnet på at søstrene er på vei med et 4. album. Om låta sier søstrene:
”It’s A Shame’ is a song about the emptiness and desperation you feel after a relationship has come to an end. How you will go to great lengths just to numb the pain and feel less lonely.”

First Aid Kit har spilt i Norge før, og da har konsertene solgt ut med en gang. Det er derfor helt naturlig at de denne gangen inntar Oslo Spektrum for deres største show i Norge noensinne. Siden sist de besøkte landet, har de skreddersydd live-showet sitt til dette formatet og vi gleder oss enormt til å se hva kommer med!

Vi gleder oss til å høre mer fra First Aid Kit og til et musikalsk høydepunkt i Oslo Spektrum 13. mars!

Nu står det klart att First Aid Kit släpper sitt efterlängtade nya album "Ruins" den 19 januari och i samband med det beger sig ut på en omfattande turné. Vi är glada och stolta över att kunna presentera tre stopp på hemmaplan i vår – 12 mars på Malmö Live Konserthus, 15 mars på Lisebergshallen i Göteborg och 16 mars på Waterfront i Stockholm. Biljetterna släpps nästa fredag 3 nov kl 11.00 via Luger.se.

Med 2014 års album ”Stay Gold” sålde First Aid Kit guld i England, platina i Sverige och nådde förstaplatsen på Sverigetopplistan. Idag presenterar den svenska duon titel och släppdatum för sin efterlängtade uppföljare – nya albumet "Ruins" – som landar den 19 januari. Skivan är producerad av Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Laura Veirs) och spelades in i Portland, Oregon där duon samarbetade med flertalet fantastiska artister – Peter Buck från REM, Glenn Kotche från Wlico och McKenzie Smith från Midlake. "Ruins" kan förbeställas idag och innehåller första singeln ”It’s a Shame” och purfärska "Postcard”, som har premiär idag via Rolling Stone Country.

First Aid Kit säger själva: “’Postcard’ är en låt med ett väldigt traditionellt sound och vi ville att produktionen skulle spegla det. Det är ingen bitter låt, snarare vänder den sig till en älskare, för att önska dem välgång på sin resa, samtidigt som man måste släppa taget.”

År 2018 inleder First Aid Kit med att åka ut på en omfattande turné i USA och Europa. Turnén inkluderar tre spelningar i Sverige i mars – i Malmö, Stockholm och Göteborg.

Pressröster om “It’s A Shame”:
This great Swedish indie-folk duo have an album coming out soon, and if this Dylan-meets-Emmylou Harris shot of country-rock sunshine is any indication, it's going to be excellent.
– Rolling Stone

They've returned in top form with “It's A Shame,” a song about growing tired of a lover and feeling so very bad about that, but it just happened.
– Vulture

A brightly polished folk-rock gem.
– Stereogum

“Lately, I’ve been thinking about the past,” the song begins, firmly cementing the cut in the melancholy, nostalgic oeuvre of Klara and Johanna Söderberg. Despite its yearning lyrics, however, the song rides on rootsy, upbeat strums and bright flashes of lap steel.
– Consequence of Sound

Klara and Johanna Söderberg’s warming vocals and delicate guitar strumming mesh to create a beautifully folky sound, and it resonates in their new single.
– Paste

In the meantime, get acquainted with ‘It’s a Shame’, their brand new single: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDdXe51yphI

The track explores “the emptiness and desperation you feel after a relationship has come to an end”, and has been described by NPR as a “slick and billowy confection which, true to the MO, applies layers of winsome charm to potent, melancholy insights about searching for an identity amid fleeting romance.”

Last in Australia in 2015, First Aid Kit’s April 2018 concerts will provide Australian fans with the first opportunity to experience the band’s brand new music live, in intimate settings.

We can’t wait to see you – and them – in April.
