Squid announce debut album 'Bright Green Field'

After spending the last year releasing a wave of impressive offerings, Squid have now announced their plans for their debut studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Bright Green Field' was produced by Dan Carey, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Narrator' ft. Martha Skye Murphy, which comes accompanied by a stunning new video directed by Felix Green, and is set to be released on the 7th May via Warp Records.

Speaking about the new offering, the band said, “Narrator was inspired by the 2019 film A Long Day's Journey Into Night, the song follows a man who is losing the distinction between memory, dream and reality and how you can often mould your memories of people to fit a narrative that benefits your ego. Martha Skye Murphy, the track's guest vocalist, made the point that the unreliable narrator is, more often than not, a male who wishes to portray women as submissive characters in their story. After some discussions with Martha she thought it’d be a good idea that she play the part of the woman wanting to break free from the dominating story the male has set.”

While director Green added, “I had wanted to make a video about the virtual creation process for some time. For example, showing the components and processes behind virtual environment construction and looking closely at those small rocks, pieces of terrain and chunks of regolith that slot together to build something bigger. I often think this “behind the digital curtain” part of 3D design looks more interesting than the final finished product since it conveys a process and an authorship. When I was approached to pitch on Squid’s single Narrator i immediately thought it could be the perfect match for this very visual idea. After talking with the band it became clear we were on similar wavelengths creatively and aesthetically and the whole creative process flowed very smoothly from start to finish”
