Squid, who were one of 2019's best breakthrough bands, are back at it again with a brand new single, this time coming through with 'Sludge'. Not only is it their first track of the year, but the single is also their first-ever offering with Warp Records, after recently signing with them.

'Sludge' was produced by legendary producer and Speedy Wunderground's own Dan Carey, who also produced their incredible EP Town Centre last year. The track originally came to life after a soundcheck before a show supporting Wire. In true Squid style, 'Sludge' is another experimental slice of magic, with each second feeling like an adventure into the unknown — the genre-defying number blends elements of post-punk, funk and everything in-between. The kaleidoscopic track also features Ollie Judge's now-signature and distinct vocals.
