"It was a long time after playing music together that we ever considered ourselves a band, so having this kind of momentum feels pretty special and pretty weird."

Emily chats to Ollie, Arthur and Louis of Bristol-based 5-piece Squid, celebrating the release of their exceptional debut album Bright Green Field, working once again with producer Dan Carey, sound and style and recording live to vinyl for RSD 2021. Bright Green Field is Rough Trade Album of the Month for May.
