Squid To Record Direct-To-Vinyl EP

Live at Metropolis Studios, London...

Squid will record a direct-to-vinyl EP next month.

The band will utilise the equipment at Metropolis Studios, a historic recording complex in Chiswick, West London.

Recording two tracks, the session will be broadcast live on Steve Lamacq's 6Music show on April 7th.

With a quick turnaround, the two track EP will then be mixed, mastered, and pressed to vinyl for Record Store Day on July 17th.

Arthur from Squid, said ahead of the recordings…

“We’ve been busying ourselves away on some scores, arranging orchestral versions of two of our favourite tracks from Bright Green Field. The process is the same as ever, starting off with no clue of what we’re doing, stumbling along together, each inputting our ideas into the music until it starts to take shape.”

“We're so excited and also quite terrified to release this little gem for Record Store Day 2021.”

Squid will release their debut album 'Bright Green Field' on May 7th.
