8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 28 January 2010
Time for a slice of power harmonising courtesy of Swedish super-teens Klara (16) and Johanna Söderberg (19); a.k.a First Aid Kit. Since wowing everyone with tasteful covers of tunes by Fleet Foxes and Buffy Sainte-Marie they got hooked up with Wichita to present 'The Big Black and The Blue'. First Aid Kit are all about the vocal harmonies so for those of you already in love with these voices, they do not disappoint, banging out pseudo-folk, country and pop with youthful enthusiasm. Arrangements are sparse and to the point leaving plenty of room for these big swedish vocal melodies. 'The Big Black & The Blue' surprises with it's authentic style and maturity beyond it's years. Ones to watch for sure.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 15th October 2014

The First album proper from the country/folk tinged Swedish sisters opens with “In The Morning” featuring vocal harmonies that sound almost like a female Louvin Brothers. “Hard Believer” is a song that is fairly typical of their sound: Lightly strummed acoustic guitar with genuinely heartfelt close harmonies. “Sailor Song” is an autoharp-led stomp and a change in pace to the first two tracks adding another colour to their palette. “Waltz For Richard” is the first top-notch song on here where melody and harmonies collide in perfect style. The absolute highlight of this album and their best song to date is “Ghost Town” an astonishingly beautiful, heart-wrenching masterpiece. The girls were discovered via YouTube where they’d posted covers of Fleet Foxes songs and it has to be said that Robin Pecknold can only dream of writing a song as good as “Ghost Town”. After “Ghost Town”, there is a drop in quality although “Winter Is All Over You” has a delicate beauty. This is a decent debut.
