Are they post-punk (everything is post punk)?
Are they prog (nobody wants to admit they're prog)?
Are they psych (no but everything is labelled such)?
Are they jazz (If you're searching, yeah)?
Are they experimental (think they dabble)?
Are they pop (they got hooks, if that's what you mean)?
Are they an indie band (they're on Warp)?
So are they an electronic band (no, Warp just do ace bands sometimes)?
Are they Squid (yes)?

Teeming with melodic epiphanies and layered sounds, Squid’s second album O Monolith is a musical evocation of environment, domesticity and self-made folklore. Like its predecessor, 2021’s critically acclaimed, UK number 4 album Bright Green Field, it is dense and tricksy – but also more warm and characterful, with a meandering, questioning nature.

Expansive, evocative and hugely varied, O Monolith retains Squid’s restless, enigmatic spirit, but it still holds surprises for those familiar with Bright Green Field. It’s a reflection of the outsized progression of a band always looking to the future. Like its namesake, O Monolith is vast and strange; alive with endless possible interpretations of its inner mysteries.
