UK post-punks Squid announce new EP, share “The Cleaner”

Squid Town Centre

Squid are a buzzed-about British post-punk band signed to Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label, and they’ve now announced a new EP called Town Centre, due September 6 via that label. New single “The Cleaner” is a seven-and-a-half-minute dose of funk-punk that should bring to mind ESG or early Talking Heads, and Squid do justice to that sound, thanks in part to the nervous energy of singer/drummer Ollie Judge, who sounds like he’s just about to go off the rails. The band have tons of upcoming UK/EU dates, including Green Man, End of the Road, Pitchfork Paris, the Primavera 20th Anniversary Weekender, and more. Hopefully they’ll come to the US soon too. All dates are listed below; tickets here.
