Swedish harmony folk sisters First Aid Kit return to Manchester in support of their much lauded second album, The Lion’s Roar. Since creating internet buzz with a cover of Fleet Foxes’ Tiger Mountain Peasant Song and signing to London’s Witchita Records, the duo have have gained international acclaim and support from the likes of Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and Jack White. Intricate, breathtaking harmonies entwine around melancholic, woodsy country arrangements to whisk the listener away to distant lands of snow and mountain air.
