Squid is a band that likes to test the limits. Including those of people who bravely try to define them. Punk-funk is the description that suits the band from the seaside resort of Brighton best so far. These contemporaries and kindred spirits of black midi, Dry Cleaning and Fontaines D.C. started out as a cover band playing funk and soul. They quickly transitioned into a band with no rules: Squid. It’s interesting that each of the five members takes on different musical roles. Vocalist Ollie Judge is also a drummer, bass guitarist Laurie Nankivell also plays cornet while keyboard player Arthur Leadbetter is also a cellist. This creates so many possibilities that they sometimes get lost in their own musical playground. However, the power of Squid’s new album 'O Monolith' and their great potential are undeniable.
