London Calling 2019, Friday


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. 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.
