First Aid Kit Say They’re More Into Playing Board Games Than Partying
Though Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg -- an indie-folk duo more readily known by their stage name First Aid Kit -- have been traveling the world playing major venues and festivals in support of their critically acclaimed third album, ‘Stay Gold,’ they say they’re not interested in the debauchery and partying typical to life on the road. In fact, their father travels with them as their lighting engineer.
“I’m diabetic, so I have to be aware of everything and take care of myself,” Klara said in an interview with the Guardian. “I’ve never been into drinking or drugs. It’s never been very exciting for me. You can have just as much fun without all of that stuff -- or actually more fun.”
“We’ve never really had the urge to do that,” Johanna continues. “To rebel against our parents has never been a big thing for us.”
“I mean, we’re not party people -- depending on your definition of a party,” explains Klara. When asked what their version of partying looks like, Klara says, “What we do is have our friends with us and play board games.”
Well, if you subscribe to Andrew W.K.’s wide interpretation of partying, then First Aid Kit’s definition works just fine.
