UK art punk band Squid's Town Centre EP on Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label was one of 2019's best EPs from a promising young band, and now -- like former Speedy Wunderground band black midi -- they've signed to a larger label. They're now on Warp, and their first single for the label is "Sludge," which the band started writing during a soundcheck when opening for Wire. Like Town Centre, it was produced by Dan Carey, and it's a dose of tense, nervy art punk that eventually takes a turn for something more eerie and desperate. It's cool stuff - check it out below.

They also have upcoming tour dates (unless coronavirus gets in the way) which are listed below.
