The hotly tipped post-punk, disco-funk phenomenon Squid have recently releases new EP called ‘Town Centre’ via Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label, the first EP from the legendary singles label. ‘Town Centre’ is a perfect distillation of everything they have done so far, making good on the angular funk of ‘The Dial,’ the disco-punk of ‘Houseplants’ the ambitious songwriting of ‘Terrestrial Changeover Blues’ and through to their more ambient-leaning early work.

Kicking off with the ambient sprawl of ‘Savage,’ Squid are instantly revelling in the uncertainty and ambiguity found in the searching out of ideas and have created something that feels meditative yet active, capturing their alluring chaos but presenting it in a totally different manner. Next up, the propulsive, guitar-led ‘Match Bet’ was written at guitarist Anton Pearson’s parents house in Norfolk and spawned from an open tuning fingerpicking pattern that sparring partner Louis Borlase had been developing after being inspired by the Don Edwards track ‘Coyotes’ in Grizzly Man.

On ‘The Cleaner,’ Squid are at their angular best, the lyrics are inspired by moving to London and trying to adjust to the pace and lifestyle of the city. The track is bursting with ideas, and there’s a clear energy and determination within the band to embrace different musical styles, deftly. ‘Town Centre’ closes with ‘Rodeo,’ a cinematic track that features an observational monologue from Ollie Judge. Percussion and keys wunderkid Arthur Leadbetter says of the track: “The song is a story for us. One that feels like you're on a movie set while the camera is rolling, but the lead actor has lost the plot and split his mind between those closest to him.”

For ‘Town Centre’ the band once again team up with producer du jour Dan Carey and emerge with a powerful, intensely angular collection of songs that recall the finest corners of late 70s post-punk alongside a propulsive motorik drive and glimmers of early noughties disco whilst expertly making it all their own.

Brighton’s psyche tearaways Squid, who seems to be on everyone's lips for the remainder of the weekender for being their favourite new discovery” - Jimi Arundell, Drowned In Sound

Psyched-out math-pop, ‘70s post-punk, and a dash of David Byrne” - Line of Best Fit

Formed in Brighton, Squid - made up of Ollie Judge, Louis Borlase, Arthur Leadbetter, Laurie Nankivell and Anton Pearson - have already been making a name for themselves as one of the most exciting new acts on the scene.” - Wonderland

Firing themselves up the list of the buzziest new bands around with electrifying new single ‘The Dial’ - released on Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label, FYI - the band team the chunky dance-punk of the mid-’00s with the hyperactive sting of Foals’ earliest recordings to make something that brings genres and styles together forcefully and fantastically.” - DIY
