On ShitKid’s new album This Is It, Åsa Söderqvist tries to replicate The Strokes and sing like Julian Casablancas, fails dismally at it, but still produces some stellar garage rock with an edgy vibe and crisp rhythms.
She says of the album, released on PNKSLM Recordings:
‘This Is It was recorded the same way as my earlier music just also inside my Volvo V70. I was inspired by The Strokes while writing it which is how it got it’s name. ‘Is This It’ was one of my favorite albums and I’ve been wanting to sing like Julian Casablancas since I heard it. I tried for this EP but in the end I guess This Is It doesn’t sound like Is This It at all.’
