I have been absolutely rubbish these last few weeks – and I’m not going to make excuses, I’m going to make up for it.

I found this girl through a tweet posted by the lovely First Aid Kit this Thursday just gone.


This girl sings our songs so beautifully! We’re in awe. Very touching. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UT8tvTECRY

I dutifully clicked and came across Maddie.

She’s from Phoenix, and I shivered just a small bit when I heard her voice – one that would be perfect in collaboration with the Swedish indie-folk duo themselves.

Her YouTube channel uploads are approaching 4,300 views and this song, a cover of Pervigilo, from First Aid Kit‘s 2009 Drunken Trees EP, only has about 450 views.

I’d like this to change – which is why it says Please RT in the subject of this post (I don’t normally do that).

I’d also like someone other than Rebecca Black and Justin Bieber to have been “discovered” on YouTube please…

Here’s the video:
