I haven’t done a international interview for quite some time now. So thought it was about time I contacted a band I’ve been really enjoying for the last year or so and wanted to know more about what they’ve been up to.
I contacted the band Shitkid who are currently Åsa Söderqvist and Lina Ericsson two people who work well together to create and play some amazing music. I was worried about this interview and sat on it for a day or so because I thought it was a horrible interview. (Turns out I was totally overthinking it and the interview sounds fine) But in my head I was a bit worried. Åsa and Lina were great to interview they are very nice and kinda. I managed to find out a few things which I never knew.
Things I found out:
Their SXSW show which is on YouTube that they played last year was one of the worst shows they’ve ever done. Which is crazy because if you look them up on YouTube that’s pretty much one of the first things that pops up.
They have toured excessively with the Melvins and are now good friends with them and the guitarist of the Butthole Surfers. (Even if they are like 50 years old) Still both great and iconic bands to be touring with and being friends with it’s totally amazing!
Shitkid plan on releasing two albums this year. The first one Detention then a second one later this year. They then plan on releasing EPs doing different genres and experimenting with their sound all while touring.
Also, that they were great people to talk to!
Check out their latest songs and grab the LP when it comes out via bandcamp here.
Give the album fish a listen. I first heard this album a year or so ago and been into the band ever since.
