Squid have shared a new single called ‘Paddling’. It’s the latest offering from the group’s upcoming debut album, Bright Green Field. Take a listen below.
“Written from two different perspectives, “Paddling” is a song about the dichotomy between simple pleasures and decadent consumerism,” Squid explained in a statement. “Recounting a familiar scene from The Wind In The Willows, the song reminds us that although we are humans, we are ultimately animals that are driven by both modern and primal instincts, leading to vanity and machismo around us in the everyday.”
Bright Green Field, the follow-up to 2019’s Town Centre EP, is out May 7 via Warp. Back in January, Squid released the lead single ‘Narrator’.
