London twee pop band Fanfarlo (previous post) have announced a full UK tour with folk band First Aid Kit, along with a money-saving presale via MusicGlue. If you haven't already heard First Aid Kit, they are a swedish acoustic duo, made up of Klara and Johanna Söderberg from Stockholm Sweden, who got quite a following after covering Fleet Foxes' Tiger Mountain Peasant Song late last year. Following it's success, they set up their twitter to take requests for more songs to cover. The first video of the lot, a cover of Buffy Sainte-Marie's Universal Soldier, is embedded below.
They have The Drunken Trees EP out now, and is definitely worth a listen and you can request more covers at their website. The link for the cheap Fanfarlo tour presale is HERE.
First Aid Kit - Little Moon is the first track from the EP.
