Aside from building a huge following from their two full length albums, sister duo First Aid Kit has also garnered attention due to their amazing covers. From Patti Smith to Fleet Foxes, the Swedish siblings have amazed and even brought the original singers to tears with their renditions. The sisters’ latest cover of Paul Simon‘s “Kathy” is an excellent addition to an already impressive cover discography.

The sisters induce goosebumps with their harmonizing on the track off Simon’s debut solo album. The sisters have full support of Simon as well, who gave them a standing ovation when they covered “America” when he received the Polar Music Prize. Watch both covers below:

  1. A great pairing – had heard both, but hearing them up against each other is worth the sharing. One nit-pick, though: the song being covered here is titled “Kathy’s SONG”, not “Kathy”.
