Patti Smith

First Aid Kit ran across my radar some months ago in an article about new bands. As I was watching through their videos on YouTube, I came across this cut of a Patti Smith cover of 'Dancing Barefoot' that they sang with Patti Smith in the audience. Patti Smith was being awarded the Polar Music Prize, which I had never heard of before this viewing. The sisters are of the polar- Sweden, and this rendition is what I woke up to this morning heavy on my mind months later. Patti Smith is drawn to tears as they bring to the song a poignancy that perhaps Smith hadn't ever before.

Take a listen. It is powerful.
