Squid deliver new single 'Undergrowth'

With their highly-anticipated new album landing in the coming months, Squid have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Undergrowth' comes accompanied by a new visualiser, directed by guitarist Louis Borlase, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Swing (In A Dream)' in previewing their sophomore LP 'O Monolith', which is out on the 9th June via Warp Records.

Speaking about the new offering, vocalist and drummer Ollie Judge said, “I really got into animism, the idea that spirits can live in inanimate objects. I was watching Twin Peaks, and there was the episode where Josie Packard’s spirit goes into a chest of drawers. So 'Undergrowth' was written from the perspective of me being reincarnated as a bedside table in the afterlife, and how the thought of being reincarnated as an inanimate object would be dreadful... Even though I’m in no way religious I don’t think anyone who isn’t religious is confident enough to not have had the fleeting thought of ‘Fuck, what if there is an afterlife? What if I’m going to Hell?’”
