Artist to Watch: First Aid Kit

At 9 pm Sunday night I was tuned into the Waist Fantasy Hour – the hottest 2 hours of inspirational workout music perfect for slimming down that tummy – when DJ Waist Fantasy played a hot new jam that I had not heard before. Turns out it was the closing track from new indie darlings First Aid Kit. Complete with handclaps, horns, and a Conor Oberst cameo, King of the World is bound to send these young Swedish sisters to the tip of every hip cat’s tongue, or at least to the first search result on Google (replacing, you know, actual first aid kits). Check the song out below, and the rest of their latest release if you dig it.
