Squid are another act who’ve been utilising the talents of producer Dan Carey.
After a string of impressive singles since 2019, Squid have confirmed their debut album Bright Green Field will be released on May 7th.
It comes with another one of those off-centre, art pop singles; this one entitled Narrator, featuring guest vocalist Martha Skye Murphy, and inspired by the 2019 film A Long Day’s Journey Into Night.
“The song follows a man who is losing the distinction between memory, dream and reality and how you can often mould your memories of people to fit a narrative that benefits your ego,” the band explain.
“Martha Skye Murphy, the track’s guest vocalist, made the point that the unreliable narrator is, more often than not, a male who wishes to portray women as submissive characters in their story.”
“After some discussions with Martha she thought it’d be a good idea that she play the part of the woman wanting to break free from the dominating story the male has set.”
