Listen: First Aid Kit cover "Dancing Barefoot" by Patti Smith

First Aid Kit

Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit are no stranger to the cover song. After all, that's how they received their big break a few years back. Recently, the group stopped by French radio station, Le Mouv, to record a fantastic cover of Patti Smith's 1979 single, "Dancing Barefoot". This new rendition utilizes Klara and Johanna Söderberg's trademark harmonies and ditches the full band used on Smith's original version. I can say with the utmost confidence that it'll be the best cover you'll hear all week. Check it out below, along with the original version.
