Currently on tour with Lykke Li, fellow Swedes First Aid Kit kicked things off last night (11/14) at the Vic Theatre in Lakeview.

Time Out Chicago was there:

It was a veritable Swedish invasion at the Vic Theatre Monday night, as two of the nation’s most melodious exports took turns onstage. Sisterly folk duo First Aid Kit started the evening out, debuting tracks from an upcoming record produced by Bright Eyes’ Mike Mogis. Joined only by a drummer, the duo fleshed out their acoustic guitar and keyboard-driven arrangements with beautiful two-part harmonies. A new song entitled “The Lion’s Roar” was the set’s high point–a ballad featuring pastoral lyrics atop a bed of lucious mellotron. Though little more than a taste of things to come, First Aid Kit’s set was a delicious tease of what seems destined to be Sweden’s next big thing to hit American shores.

If you missed them this time around, First Aid Kit will be returning to Chicago on April 6th to play Lincoln Hall. Tickets go on sale this Friday (11/18), at noon CST.
