The debut album from the London based band Squid is out on the 7th of May
First single is out:
This is going to be so good
Stoked for this, Narrator is a hell of a song
Yeah, what a single! Per-ordered!
Tossed on the Town Centre EP for the first time in a while this morning and its got me even more hyped for this. "The Cleaner" is one of the best songs to come out of this broader "scene." I'm really glad most of the songs on this record are around 5 minutes or more.
Totally agree! I have listened to Squid almost all day. So much that I went so hyped that I bought a ticket to their show in Stockholm (when it will happen).
I love that album cover! I'm so stoked for this houseplants is a 10/10 song and I've been dying for a full project from them
Been trying to get more into post-punk and this song is very much up my alley!
Liked everything i've heard from them so far, intrigued to see what this is like.
New single "Paddling" out today:
Narrator is really good. The verses kinda remind of Foals during Antidotes. The song derailes in the end. I like that!
New song Pamphlets has been released. Another banger. This band deserves more hype!
Pamphlets grooves so hard - 90s Isaac Brock delivery is delightful. Immediately one of my favourite songs Squid have released so far
This is so sick. Dan Carey (produced this, worked with black midi, Franz Ferdinand, Bat for Lashes, and Fontaines D.C.) is playing guitar with them here!
@Rowan5215 are you into this band? Album comes out at midnight!
I've heard a few songs here and there, like them a fair bit and love "Houseplants" but I haven't done a deep dive on their stuff yet. guess this will be a good place to start!
You’re going to love Pamphlets
This thing is DENSE
this is some good shit, even if they wear the Talking Heads influence a little too blatantly sometimes, still fuck with it. "Pamphlets" is massive
this has me working through their back catalogue and damn, Town Centre is a perfect little EP. think I prefer it to the album
also "Broadcaster" might be my favourite song from these lads overall
The Story Behind Every Song On Squid's New Album 'Bright Green Field'
I listening for the first time now. I like it half through
Stoked to see that this is a Stereogum piece. The feature about the story behind the last Fontaines D.C. album was amazing
stereogum are consistently excellent imo. always love reading their work
