Squid are a British five-piece formed in Brighton, UK.
Drawing on influences from styles as disparate as Krautrock, Jazz, & Ambient – the group has a cohesion & dynamism that belies their youthful existence.
Utilising varied and interchangeable instrumentation – Squid’s exceptional individual and collective musicianship finds them exploring the depth of their own soundscapes and finding the peace or the chaos instilled within.
‘A delicious Krautrock-y psyche sound’ – Tom Robinson Show, BBC Radio 6 Music
'In a world of sanitising bands and uninspiring songs, Squid offer us something different.’ – Gigwise
'Psyche-y and Krautrock-y, ticks all the right boxes!’ – Melita Dennett, BBC Introducing
