Brighton’s five piece Squid have been on everyone’s radar for a minute. Now signed to Warp Records, the post punk band has just released a new single “Sludge.” While their sound isn’t as traditional of a post punk form that you may be used to, they’re also not a traditional group in any sense of the word.
Mixing rhythms and multiple instrumentation, the band has no issue dipping their toes into multiple aspects of the genre. With a sneer in the vocals and a plunky bass, the way they grace upon multiple spaces offers a version of post punk that’s all its own. The song is catchy in its own way, offering up many people’s first glimpse into the band that should be a household name sooner than later.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The single is ready to stream on all streaming platforms or to purchase digitally via Warp Records.
