It's a surreal dose of disco-punk...

Brighton art-rock outfit Squid have shared their outrageous new single 'Houseplants'.

A band you can never second guess, 'Houseplants' is Squid at their most obtuse, yet also their most direct.

The choppy disco-punk rhythm feels almost too fast and too slow at the same, strolling through three distinct sections.

Driven by that endless stream of consciousness lyric, 'Houseplants' explodes into a free-jazz skronk out before Ollie Judge shrugs: "Maybe I'm too lazy..."

The singer explains that the song is about “being able to afford a house and not having to have beans on toast for the week leading up to payday. Pessimistically, I don’t see that future happening, but I still catch myself every now and again thinking it could.”

Produced by the one and only Dan Carey, 'Houseplants' comes equipped with visuals drawn by Raissa Pardini.
