First Aid Kit perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Sept. 13, 2018. 

Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit dropped by the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday (Sept. 13) to perform their single "Fireworks" and to celebrate the release of their new EP Tender Offering.

The band took to the disco ball-lit stage to perform the melancholy song, which touches on themes of hopes and expectations and how if set too high, can get in the way of life. The performance echoed the nostalgia-inducing prom theme from the track's official music video.

Johanna and Klara sang in perfect harmony as the lithe strings, backing vocals, and intricate guitar came together to create a tuneful melody.
