Formed in Brighton, Squid is the brainchild of Ollie Judge (Drums & Lead Vocals), Louis Borlase (Guitars & Vocals), Arthur Leadbetter (Keyboards), Laurie Nankivell (Bass & Brass) and Anton Pearson (Guitars & Vocals).
The hotly tipped post-punk, disco-funk phenomenon Squid recently released their incandescent new single called Houseplants which saw them team up with producer Dan Carey and emerge with a powerful, intensely angular track. Houseplants recalls the finest corners of late 70s post-punk alongside a propulsive motorik drive and glimmers of early noughties disco with the end result being an effortlessly exciting ride.
Houseplants which has had great support from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music as well as being featured in The Guardian, The Quietus, NME, So Young and The Line Of Best Fit and many more publications.
Squid recently performed at SXSW and received rave reviews for their performances from The Times, Paste Magazine, DIY and Steve Lamacq who introduced them for their 6 Music showcase at the festival.
Previous singles The Dial and Terrestrial Changeover Blues (2007 - 2012) were both released in 2018 and proved to be pivotal for the band in setting up 2019 as their breakthrough year.
Squid are fast becoming known for their incendiary live shows; they play with an energy and conviction that is positively transcendent in its chaos and fever. Having performed their first festival shows and sold out headline shows to rapturous audiences, Squid are set to make 2019 their own with a summer full of festival appearances and their first shows outside Europe.
