Squid may have been named on the BBC’s Sound of 2020 long list but, if you were here at End of the Road back in 2019 and caught one of their three incredible shows, you will have already been in the know. Though the band describe their sound as the “Coronation Street theme tune played on flutes by angry children”(NME, 2019), it sounds to us more like a whirlpool of clattering krautrock that fizzes with energy as they sing about shop cleaners, Sonic Youth super-fans and houseplants. Their Town Centre EP was one of our favourites of 2019 and “Houseplants” is a track that keeps buzzing around your head all day. Their sound is a joyful, frazzled racket and we can’t wait for them to bring it back to Dorset.
