Squid are a British band that 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 also shared the AA-Side track “Broadcaster“. The tracks are getting a limited edition vinyl pressing, released via new label Warp Records on June 26th, featuring an extended version of “Broadcaster”. It is built around an arpeggiated synth sequence that was conceived during a writing session in a woodland cabin by Arthur whilst the rest of the band were out hiking.
Lead singer Ollie Judge explains: “Lyrically the track was inspired by the visual artist Naim June Paik and his TV Garden installation. I thought it blurred the lines between a dystopian and utopian vision. I imagined what it must be like living synonymously amongst nature and technology in the most literal way I could imagine, with TVs towering over me amongst forests.”
