    It's a shame that Wendy & Lisa aren't synonymous with songwriting duos like John and George, and Jagger and Richards. These two ladies co-wrote some of the best songs of the '80s with Prince, before going on to write for artists like Gwen Stefani, Madonna, and OK Go.
    • First Aid Kit

      Combining traditional influences like The Carter Family, with modern folk/indie artists like Fleet Foxes and Conor Oberst, these Swedish sisters create a gloomy musical atmosphere that begs you to let it envelop you. 
      • Genres (Music): Indie pop, Americana, Folk music, Psychedelic pop, Indie folk
      • Albums: Drunken Trees, The Big Black and the Blue, You're Not Coming Home, The Lion's Roar, Stay Gold
