Name: SQUID (UK)
Date Performing: Saturday, 2 December 2023
Since garnering rave reviews for their 2021 debut album ‘Bright Green Field’, which was described by AllMusic as an “energetic shouting match of vivid new wave, Krautrock, and post-punk influences,” Brighton five-piece Squid have become known as one of the most electrifying live acts around. Fresh from the release of their expansive second album, ‘O Monolith’, the Warp Records signings are primed for what is sure to be an explosive Hong Kong debut at Clockenflap on Saturday December 2.
作為英國脫歐前後湧現嘅post punk/ art ppunk生力軍之一，憑早期單曲〈House Plants〉平地一聲雷，五人樂隊 Squid 既精於後朋克常見嘅躁動硬棍節奏，又以融合爵士樂靈活基因成為浪潮尖子。繼2021年處女大碟《Bright Green Field》大受好評後，呢班白禮頓少年今年再交出高分續作《O Monolith》，深化電子舞曲、管弦樂、前衛搖滾等元素，進一步各種音符對立實驗，既收錄仿如樂器打大交嘅〈Siphon Song〉，亦有〈Swing (In A Dream)〉等相對「易聽」嘅曲式，今個十二月首度來港，就等樂迷嚟Clockenflap現場參加佢哋依場美好亂局。"
