Like many we have been charmed by the tipsy musings of Sweden’s Åsa Söderqvist, aka ShitKid, backed with resolutely lo-fi guitar fuzz and digital drum-beats, but executed with rock n’ roll grit and charming nonchalance.

She will release her highly anticipated debut album Fish via PNKSLM Recordings on the 2nd June and the latest track from it is Two Motorbikes, of which she says “This one is about motorbike-taxis in Southeast Asia where I spent two months either alone or with a guy. It’s about holiday romance and how you have to relinquish any fear of dying while there. When you say yes to helmetless and reckless motorbike rides through crowded Bangkok traffic thinking “oh well, better to burn out.”

Listen to it below. Pre-order the album here.

With a distinctly lo-fi sound and DIY aesthetic that starkly contrasts with the regular image of Scandinavian music, Sweden’s ShitKid, aka 24-year-old Stockholm based Åsa Söderqvist, returns with a new release EP 2, and a new single Sugar Town.

Probably the best thing she’s done to date with its garage pop swagger and catchy refrain, you can listen to the single below, and pre-order the EP here.

  1. Devendra Banhart – Middle Names
