Buzzy U.K. rock act Squid’s debut album is close at hand, and ahead of Bright Green Field’s May 7th release via Warp Records the band shared another new single, “Pamphlets,” and announced their first-ever U.S. tour. The track finds Ollie Judge and company attempting to bottle the lightning that is their live-show energy, which translated into one of our favourite performances at the last End Of The Road Festival.

Drummer, vocalist and lyricist Judge says of “Pamphlets” in a statement, “It’s about all the rubbish right-wing propaganda you get through your front door. It imagines a person with that as their only source of news being taken over by these pamphlets.” Both Judge’s vein-popping vocals and the band’s edgy instrumentation build to an explosive crescendo, like paranoia and isolation straining and ultimately fracturing an already-tenuous grasp on reality.

Taken from the debut album “Bright Green Field”, out 7th May: This is one of our songs that has shape-shifted the most and has always been a staple of our live show when we were able to tour. Out of all the music on Bright Green Field, we’ve played “Pamphlets” the most, and some people might remember it from our gigs. It’s a song that’s also has come full circle, we started it in Chippenham and finished it in Chippenham. An ode to Wiltshire?

Possibly – but it was always the song that we knew would finish our first album.
