2. Town Centre (2019)
“I’m really looking forward to the future of this band. The ambient tracks didn’t do much for me but the other two tracks are clearly what the album is about. “Match Bet” and “The Cleaner” are both songs that come very close to some of the best Talking Heads songs. That’s obviously the main inspiration here, and I hope that as Squid mature as a band they’ll be less dependent on their influences because these guys are really talented.”
1. Bright Green Field (2021)
“Squid are one of those bands that seem to have been around for longer than they have. Their shouty, ranty and impossibly catchy singles Houseplants, and The Cleaner have been some of the most original and exciting tracks in recent years and having seen Squid live at a couple of festivals, saying that this debut album is “eagerly awaited” is an understatement. “
