ShitKid – “RnR Sally”
New EP out July 8
As premiered on The Line of Best Fit
“outrageously fun and filthy, taking on the acid-infused output of Kyuss or Deap Vally with a real sense of fun – ShitKid gets better and better with every outing, and her next steps demand your undivided attention” – The Line of Best Fit
New single from ShitKid out now, expanded version of the self-titled debut EP with five new tracks out July 8.
ShitKid is the project of 23-year-old Åsa Söderqvist based in Gothenburg in the south of Sweden. After moving to Gothenburg from her hometown in the north of Sweden she found herself starting a feminist punk band with two friends and quickly started playing around Gothenburg, but at the same time she’d also started recording on her own at home.
Recording on a half-broken computer and using vocal effects to record guitar solo, and with tracks purely consisting of vocals and drums, Åsa shared her works on Soundcloud in June 2015. Four months later she reached out to Stockholm label PNKSLM Recordings, and the first fruit of the collaboration was ShitKid’s official debut single “Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid”, which was released on March 1. The debut single was followed by second single “666” and the three track debut EP ShitKid, which was released on April 1, picking up praise from the likes of SPIN, The FADER, Dazed, Pigeons & Planesand BEAT.
Now ShitKid is set to release the full and expanded version of the debut EP, featuring five new tracks led by lead single “RnR Sally”, on July 1 before heading into the studio to record the debut full-length (due this winter).
Press for ShitKid EP:
“a collection of three eerily incandescent blasts that lands somewhere between the eternal static-pop cool of Jesus and Mary Chain, the ear-splitting cheer-punk of Sleigh Bells, and the lyrical, pre-apocalyptic doom of early Bauhaus. It’s as intoxicating and chilling as the feeling of wearing a leather jacket and sunglasses for the first time.” – SPIN
“It’s a wonderfully messy song packed with DIY charm, and we can’t wait to hear more” – Pigeons & Planes
“the musical equivalent of matte black nail polish and thick wing-tipped eyeliner” – The FADER
