First Aid Kit - Fireworks (Official Video)

In April 2007 the sisters started to upload their self-made songs to the social networking site MySpace. They also sent a demo of their song 'Tangerine' to the Swedish radio. It immediately went on air and was listed as one of the best songs of the summer 2007, which led to requests for live performances and even some offers from record companies. The first official performance as First Aid Kit was at PUNKTmedis library in Stockholm on 6 October. More gigs followed but as Klara was 14 and still at school, they could only play during weekends.April 2008 saw the release of the debut EP 'Drunken Trees' in Sweden. The EP was produced by their father and was a re-recorded collection of songs from their MySpace site originally called "Cross Oceans". Their first appearance in Swedish TV was also that month. The duo was already quite well known in Sweden by August 2008, when they uploaded a cover version of 'Tiger Mountain Peasant Song' by Fleet Foxes to YouTube. Robin Pecknold, frontman and lead guitarist for Fleet Foxes, noticed the duo's message about the video and praised the song on his band's webpage with multiple exclamation marks, causing a surge of popularity of the video. It led to First Aid Kit becoming internationally known, and them signing with Wichita Records at the end of 2008.
