On Houseplants, Squid once again team up with producer du jour Dan Carey and emerge with a powerful, intensely angular track that manages to recall the finest corners of late 70s post-punk alongside a propulsive motorik drive and glimmers of early noughties disco whilst expertly making it all their own.
Throughout its three movements Houseplants exhibits a playfulness, verve and energy that Squid eagerly allow into every part of a process which the band describes as “fast and furious”. It’s partly that willingness to try something new, to allow a single good idea to flourish and to work off-the-cuff that marks Squid out as such a tantalising prospect amongst their peers.

The reason I love this record, is that despite being over 60, I am forced to dance about to it - non stop and grin at the lyrics. It is no longer possible for me to negotiate airports and traveling without having dry cleaning blaring into my soul - I could not deal with mankind without the driving rhythm, the poignant early 80’s guitar, and the laconic musings of this wonderful band.

You four are all beauts - Tightest outfit I've heard since the word 'lockdown" became a thing. An amazingly - one of a kind - and incomparable combination.
