Song Of The Day: ShitKid – waste of time

Much like practically everyone else, Åsa Söderqvist’s plans for 2020 have certainly turned out differently than expected. When things took a sharp turn for the worse earlier this year, Söderqvist’s band ShitKid were already in the midst of a series of U.S. tourdates leading up to an expected appearance at SXSW which, of course, never did happen. Since then, the band have made it safely back home to Stockholm, released a soundtrack album (for the documentary Always Amber), and seen the departure of longtime bassist Lina Molarin Ericsson. And now, with plenty of time on her hands, Söderqvist has recorded yet another album, the upcoming 20/20 ShitKid. So all things considered, ShitKid has kept herself pretty busy.

After delving into heavier, grunge-influenced sounds on January’s Duo Limbo/”Mellan himmel å helvete” (wow, January already seems like a lifetime ago), 20/20 ShitKid sees Shitkid returning to the synth-based sounds of earlier recordings. “Waste of time” is the first single off the album, which is out August 21 via PNKSLM Recordings. Check it out below.
