SXSW Song of the Day: Squid – The Dial


squid

Squid is bound to be one of those bands that people will claim are here to save rock & roll, and it’s easy to see why. The Brighton band have a post-punk vibe whose simplicity and effectiveness will invoke nostalgia from old rockers. the lead singer’s almost spoken vocals will remind many of James Murphy’s old man gruffs from LCD Soundsystem. Combine the two and you have an element of excitement.

Whatever they end up being, Squid is off to a good start. Check them out at British Music Embassy

Squid is playing Latitude 30 on March 14 at 10:00pm.
