Squid’s Debut Album, Bright Green Field, Out On Warp Records

Squid’s acclaimed debut album Bright Green Field, released earlier this year via Warp Records, has cemented the band as one of the most exciting new acts to arrive from the UK. The album garnered perfect scores from several publications and high praise from the New YorkerPitchforkStereogumNPR Music, and beyond. Next week, Squid finally make their way stateside for their long-awaited, first-ever US tour, which has been completely sold out for months. In honor of the tour kicking off, Squid share an unexpected cover of Bill Callahan’s “America!

At first staying close to the original with subtle guitar and percussion, the track later expands with lurching drums, noisey feedback, and Ollie Judge’s distinctive voice. The band elaborates: “Earlier in the year we went to Otterhead Studios in the midlands to do some recording as we emerged from lockdown 2.0. We decided to cover some of our favourite tunes and one of them was ‘America!’ by Bill Callahan. We didn’t think that this cover would see the light of day, but we wanted to release something special just in time for us heading over to tour the USA.” Having long been praised for their kinetic performances, Squid — Louis Borlase (guitars, vocals), Ollie Judge (drums, lead vocals), Arthur Leadbetter (keyboards, strings, percussion), Laurie Nankivell (bass, brass) and Anton Pearson (guitars, vocals) — are not to be missed live.
