East of downtown Austin at Hotel Vegas during the first day of SXSW, a band called Squid played in a large outdoor. The five piece hail from Brighton and London, and in addition to guitar, bass, drum, and vocals throw a few horns, cowbells, and a triangle into the mix. Their music is arty and post-punky, and if you’re a fan of bands like Omni (one of our favourite acts from SXSW last year), we recommend you give Squid a try- start with Dial.

If you live in London, you can catch Squid at Shacklewell Arms with Pip Blom and Amyl and the Sniffers on March 29th. Their latest single Houseplants is out now.
