First Aid Kit Performs “Fireworks” and “You Are The Problem Here” on Jimmy Kimmel Live
- Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where the duo performed “Fireworks” and “You Are The Problem Here”.
This marks their first performance on American TV program.
“Fireworks” is included on their fourth studio album "Ruins", which was released in January 2018.
“You Are The Problem Here” was released on International's Women's Day in 2017 and serves as an indictment against a rapist who received too lenient of a sentence for a sexual assault.
"'You Are the Problem Here' isn't a typical First Aid Kit-song," the Soderberg sisters said in a statement at the time. "It's angry and direct. It's a song written out of despair ... After reading about yet another rape case where the perpetrator was handed a sentence which did not at all reflect the severity of his crime we felt upset and vengeful. We were, and are, sick of living in a society where the victims of rape are often blamed for the horrible thing that has been done to them."
- First Aid Kit consists of the sisters Klara (vocals/guitar) and Johanna Söderberg (vocals/keyboards/Autoharp/bass guitar). The duo debuted with an EP "Drunken Trees" in 2008. Since then, they have three albums like "The Big Black and the Blue", "The Lion's Roar" and "Stay Gold".
