ShitKid, the project of 25 year old Swedish musician Åsa Söderqvist, made her debut in the spring of 2016 with the “Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid” single and her self-titled debut EP on PNKSLM Recordings which brought her the attention of The FADER, Dazed, SPIN, Pigeons & Planes, The Line of Best Fit and many more.
In just two years she’s become one of Scandinavia’s most acclaimed new artists, toured around the world and received critical acclaimed from music press worldwide for her three EPs and the debut album Fish from 2017. With a completely unique sound that’s been described as anti-pop – home-recorded lo-fi pop written, recorded and produced by Åsa herself with influences from grunge, garage rock and mainstream pop ShitKid’s emerged as one of Europe’s most interesting young artists.
In January 2018 she released her third EP This Is It which was followed by European tour dates and her debut US shows during SXSW 2018. During the summer and fall ShitKid toured Scandinavia and supported the Melvins on their European tour while finishing up her second album, which will be released in Spring 2019 via PNKSLM Recordings, with Åsa Söderqvist joined by Lina Molarin Eriksson on bass.
