'as intoxicating and chilling as the feeling of wearing a leather jacket and sunglasses for the first time’ SPIN



Clearer than the lo-fi murkiness of the debut EP but still very much the opposite to the slick pop dominating todays musical landscape, ShitKid - AKA 24-year old Åsa Söderqvist - will release her highly anticipated debut album 'Fish’ via PNKSLM Recordings on June 2nd. 

 Originally from the north of the Sweden, Åsa moved to Gothenburg after high school, starting a feminist punk band before turning inward and recording what would become her debut self-titled EP on a broken computer at home. A collection of three eerily incandescent blasts recounting the age-old tale of love at first sight was the result. Released in the spring of 2016, her unique brand of grunge-pop reached far beyond it’s lo-fi confines, with debut single 'Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid' appearing on national TV the very next day. An expanded version of the debut EP was released in the summer of 2016, leading to numerous festival appearances in her homeland and sold-out shows in London and Stockholm, quickly becoming one of the most talked about new acts around. With live favourite “Sugar Town” leading the charge, 'EP 2' followed in March, inviting the listener into ShitKid’s world and showcasing Åsa's strength as a songwriter.

Written, recorded and produced by ShitKid, ‘Fish’ cements the arrival of an anti-popstar in the making. Guitar fuzz and digital drum-beats provide a fitting platform for her tipsy musings, executed with rock n' roll grit and charming nonchalance. Catch her live across Europe this spring/summer:
