Coachella musicians hip to fashion

Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Beats Antique, Frank Ocean, Azealia Banks and First Aid Kit are a few of the acts with a strong sense of style.

The Swedish folk duo of sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg, who hail from the Stockholm suburb of Enkede and perform as First Aid Kit, may be all but unknown to U.S. audiences, but they're steeped in Americana. The video for their song "Emmylou" — a tribute to their favorite country musicians including Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, June Carter and Johnny Cash — was shot in Joshua Tree National Park on Parson's birthday. And the album it's on, "Lion's Roar," was recorded in Omaha, Neb.

It's not just the duo's sound that harks back to the folksy America of days gone by. The sisters dress the part too, with a look that's pure ladies of the canyons circa 1974, complete with floral print dresses, flowing tresses, lace shawls, fringe and chunky turquoise jewelry.

And, while the denim shirt dresses, leather jackets and prairie skirts might not be blazing any new trends at Coachella, it's a safe bet to think the singing Swedish sisters will have a look that perfectly captures the spirit.
