Sweden’s ShitKid Premieres Grunge Pop “Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid”

In anticipation of the release of her debut EP next month, Swedish pop singer SkitKid has shared a new single titled "Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid." This song is all parts grunge pop, like the musical equivalent of matte black nail polish and thick wing-tipped eyeliner. Over a track of steady drum and bass, Shitkid sings in a wispy, half-spoken tone, Now I can not ever let you go/ I need you laying on my dirty floor / Saying shit that I already know. The song encompasses all the exciting angst you get when you spot someone and have that little twinge of love at first sight, only slightly more exaggerated.

After a night out partying, ShitKid wrote and recored the entire song while still buzzing after a night out. "I recorded it immediately when I had stumbled home from that party," she wrote in a note to The FADER. "The singing became half-whispering/talking cause it was four a clock in the morning and I didn’t wanna wake the neighbours. When I woke up, it took me a few more hours to remember the drunk recording the night before, and I had a walk of shame to my computer, slowly opening garageband. And there it was. The exact feeling he gave me."

"Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid" will be officially released on March 1 via PNKSLM Recordings.
