SQUID – ” Swing (In a Dream) “

Posted: February 9, 2023 in MUSIC

Teeming with melodic epiphanies and layered sounds, squid’s second album is a musical evocation of environment, domesticity and self-made folklore.

Like its predecessor, 2021’s ‘Bright Green Field’, it is dense and tricksy – but also more warm and characterful, with a meandering, questioning nature. expansive, evocative and hugely varied, ‘O Monolith’ retains squid’s restless, enigmatic spirit, but it still holds surprises for those familiar with ‘Bright Green Field’. it’s a reflection of the outsized progression of a band always looking to the future. like its namesake, ‘O Monolith’ is vast and strange; alive with endless possible interpretations of its inner mysteries.

From the forthcoming album ‘O Monolith’ out 9th June via Warp Records.
