We're very familiar with the impeccably precise harmony of Sweden's First Aid Kit—sisters Johanna and Klara never sound anything less than angelic. Their beautiful timbre was last seen at the Polar Music Prize award ceremony in Stockholm, where they moved the audience to near-tears with their rendition of Patti Smith's classic tune "Dancing Barefoot". As the camera jumps between attentive audiences members, one stands out as significant—Patti Smith herself, shedding a tear at the girls rendition of her song. It's kind of awesome. Grab a kleenex and check it out below.
Catch up on more First Aid Kit goodness with our own session with the girls.
And catch them on tour this fall, supporting Bright Eyes and Lykke Li.
