Squid has shared their second single with Warp Records, yesterday coming through with ‘Broadcaster’. The track is also their second single of the year, the first being ’Sludge’. To celebrate both tracks, the band will be releasing a 10” vinyl on June 26, which is set to feature ‘Sludge’ as well as an extended version of ‘Broadcaster’.

‘Broadcaster’ commences with escalating synths building behind Judge’s vocals, before gradually transitioning into a state of chaos. The pulsating new track was inspired by visual influences according to Squid’s own Ollie Judge. “Lyrically the track was inspired by the visual artist Naim June Paik and his TV Garden installation. I thought it blurred the lines between a dystopian and utopian vision. I imagined what it must be like living synonymously amongst nature and technology in the most literal way I could imagine, with TVs towering over me amongst forests.”
