Streetlight Records

Teeming with melodic epiphanies and layered sounds, Squids second album O Monolith is a musical evocation of environment, domesticity and self-made folklore. Like its predecessor, 2021s critically acclaimed, UK number 4 album Bright Green Field, it is dense and tricksy but also more warm and characterful, with a meandering, questioning nature. A sense of open conversation is cultivated: this is unmistakably music made by friends, but its not exclusionary theyre inviting you in to listen with them. Expansive, evocative and hugely varied, O Monolith retains Squids restless, enigmatic spirit, but it still holds surprises for those familiar with Bright Green Field. Its a reflection of the outsized progression of a band always looking to the future. Like its namesake, O Monolith is vast and strange; alive with endless possible interpretations of its inner mysteries.
