Kid? At 24, possibly yes. Shit? Absolutely not.
Åsa Söderqvist is Shitkid, based in Gothenburg these days. She’s been on our radar for a little while with a couple of EPs, but now comes her first long player. Fish is out on June 2.
Sugar Town previously appeared on EP2, but is also the stand-out track from Fish and gives you a good primer in what Shitkid is all about. Wilfully lo-fi and under-produced, it’s a DIY ethic writ large. It’s got a lot of character, enough quirk and charm to get it through and over the top.
