ShitKid is 23-year-old Åsa Söderqvist, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, and she’s not a natural when it comes to performing. For years, she struggled with live shows, relying on alcohol to push through her shyness. Instead of studios and collabs, she opted to record solo on a half-broken computer at home, learning Garage Band as she went and eventually recording her first songs under the name ShitKid.

Now she’s partnered with Stockholm label PNKSLM Recordings and ready to start putting the ShitKid music out. Her first single was “Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid,” and her follow-up is the raucous “666.” It’s a wonderfully messy song packed with DIY charm, and we can’t wait to hear more. Look out for her debut EP on April 1.
