Squid 2 Friday Five Day Forecast 2019

Squid deliver playful punk on new single "Houseplants"

Brighton-bred quartet Squid return with erratic new offering "Houseplants".

When we spoke to Squid ahead of their performance at our Five Day Forecast showcase last month, they said 2019 was going to be a "large one".

Their new single "Houseplants" is a prime example of that statement - erratic and playful, and delivers a relatable message. Vocalist and drummer Ollie Judge says the track is about "being able to afford a house and not having to have beans on toast for the week leading up to payday. Pessimistically, I don’t see that future happening, but I still catch myself every now and again thinking it could."

"Houseplants" is produced by Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Goat Girl, Bat For Lashes), who also produced their previous single "The Dial".

Squid's new single "Houseplants" is out now via Practise Music. The band plays London's Shacklewell Arms on 29 March. Find out more.
