ShitKid’s debut release built a reputation for Asa Soderqvist as a spirited free-thinker.  Wrapped in lo-fi stylings and heavy distortion, ShitKid’s work was accessible due to its lack of gloss and Soderqvist’s straight to the point punk narratives.  

Stepping into the studio for the first time, what Soderqvist makes up in clarity unfortunately is lost in impact as [Detention] aims for the pop charts with its Sum 41-meets-Busted stories about teenage rebellion (detentions, smoking, choosing the wrong partner) and its overproduced sound. Maintaining interesting ideas, but unable to meet the danger of her debut, [Detention] feels like a slightly wasted opportunity from someone who has proved she is worth listening to.
