South West post punk band, Squidge, are back with a new single after their earlier release this year of ‘Simple Functions’. Since 2015 they have been slowly developing and moulding their sound bringing touches of the emo and post punk era and making them relevant to today’s current music scene.
Squidge are very well known in the Bristol and Bath live music scene, notching up noticeable support slots with bands like Sickjoy, Muskets, and the one and only Beans on Toast, but it’s hard not to be aware of the excitement around the non-stop energy performances they bring to a live audience and then bottling that momentum into a single when gigs are something we look forward to diving deep into again in the future when lockdown is a distant moment in the past.
Cardboard Box in itself is a metaphorical vessel which reflects upon ones journey on their deathbed and there is no better way than to hope that this metaphorical journey has had some eventful moments, than to sit back and allow grunge vibes stamp all over you with a hint of a Nirvana influence in a modern post punk bands DNA.
Squidge pour out rough raw catchy lyrics which have an easy attention grabbing effect, backed up by proper good old fashioned emo rock lighting a fire within your memories, which allows you to float back to your youth and make this experience a realistic and enjoyable advantage.
