Shapeshifting English band Squid returns with the surreal electronic number “Swing (In A Dream)”, their first new music since releasing the excellent debut album Bright Green Field.
Speaking about it, singer and drummer Ollie Judge says: “This was inspired by a dream I had about a painting called The Swing by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. In my dream I was in the painting but it was flooded and everything was floating away”.
It is the first song taken from the band’s upcoming new album O Monolith, set for release on June 9 through Warp Records, and it is also out with the music video, directed by Yoonha Park.
Squid would also be touring a lot this year, having already lined up a big set of dates for the next months, including both single gigs and festival appearances. The only show in Italy would be in Milan @ Santeria Toscana 31 on September 19. Get the tickets for that here and find the full list of dates on the band’s website.
