Squid are a British band which recently signed to Warp Records. One year after Town Centre EP, they’re back with a new track titled “Sludge” which shows the powerful rough sound. The musical thrust of ‘Sludge’ was initially conceived during a soundcheck whilst supporting seminal post-punk group Wire; it sees also the band team up again with Dan Carey.
They shared the official video composed from fan’s footage of their isolation experiences as requested from the band last week. Working with visual artist Ali Amiri (who first uploaded a clip of isolation from Tehran) and Warp, Squid asked fans to submit a 360º video of wherever they were locked down to make a music video.
Discussing the process Squid said: “After looking through all the videos it was really interesting to see how spatially different everyone’s situation is but how they’re all tied together through the same feeling of isolation. Some videos were claustrophobic, others showed deserted cityscapes and some even featured other people but they all had a lingering feeling of loneliness and uncertainty.”
