Shitkid, aka 23-year-old Åsa Söderqvist, is the latest signee to PNKSLM Recordings and perfectly embodies what makes this record label so special. “Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid”, ShitKid’s official debut single, is ferociously energetic - the sort of anarchic expression of youth that will make you want to pick up a guitar and form your own band. This is something quite special, an untamed introduction to a thrilling new talent.
Söderqvist was born in northern Sweden but moved to Gothenburg aged 16 where she started a feminist punk band with two of her friends while recording solo material on the side. ShitKid’s EP will be released later this month.
