Woozy, surreal guitar pop that spins a coming-of-age tale...

Squid don't seem to write 'songs', per se.

By which we mean: when encountering their work don't expect the middle eight to slot in to the right place, or the chorus to arrive on time.

Last year's 'LINO' EP demonstrated a vivid, highly idiosyncratic imagination, which didn't seem to slot into any set scene or genre.

New song 'Terrestrial Changeover Blues (2007 - 2012)' is online now, and it takes the changeover between analogue and digital television sets as a coming-of-age tale.

Opening with woozy, off kilter guitar lines, Squid seem to groove sideways, caught in a codeine fug.

Then the guitar line snaps in two, and the band move into an endless cosmiche groove, a Neu! fantasy as itchily contagious as it is futuristic.

Tune in now.
