“The Dial further cements Squid’s position as one of the most exciting rising bands around right now.” THE LINE OF BEST FIT
With every new single, the British buzz around this Brighton quintet grows. The waves finally broke with the current one, The Dial, as it was released by Speedy Wunderground – the label run in a very special way by Dan Carey, the producer who left his mark on albums by Bat for Lashes, The Kills, Franz Ferdinand … The most ravenous submarine band in Brighton grazes Talking Heads, Television, Parquet Courts and even LCD Soundsystem with its tentacles, resulting in catchy post-punk with propulsive rhythms and psychedelic inlays. They’re fresh off of a year of explosive gigs, setting foot on the Old Continent for the first time. Welcome!
