ShitKid is the project of 24-year-old Åsa Söderqvist who made her debut in 2016 with a self-titled debut EP, which quickly propelled her into being one of the most talked about new acts in Sweden. Originally from the north of Sweden, Åsa moved to Gothenburg after high school, starting a feminist punk band and acting amongst other things, before turning inward and recording what would become her debut EP on a broken computer at home, while learning to use GarageBand. The end result was a distinct sound, mixing lo-fi sensibilities and catchy songwriting with Åsa's unmistakeable vocals.
Close to a year after first appearing, Asa released follow-up EP 2, another lo-fi statement of intent, inviting the listener into ShitKid's world and showcasing her strength as a songwriter. Now ShitKid presents her long-awaited debut LP titled Fish. Recorded during the same sessions as EP 2 it's another step on ShitKid's musical journey – offering up a sound that's clearer than the lo-fi murkiness of the debut EP but still very much the opposite to the slick pop dominating the musical landscape today. Fish was written, recorded, performed and produced by Åsa Söderqvist and mixed by Simon Skeleton.
