Squid have shared new song ‘Broadcaster’.
The band have signed to Warp Records, who release their new wah wah pedalling missive ‘Sludge’.
The double A-side single comes equipped with ‘Broadcaster’ on the flip, with the physical release following on June 26th.
Online now, ‘Broadcaster’ opens with a spiralling, arpeggiated synth riff, its restrained minimalism building to vocal yelps and surreal slurs.
Squid’s Ollie Judge comments:
“Lyrically the track was inspired by the visual artist Naim June Paik and his TV Garden installation. I thought it blurred the lines between a dystopian and utopian vision. I imagined what it must be like living synonymously amongst nature and technology in the most literal way I could imagine, with TVs towering over me amongst forests.”
Tune in now.
