Alternative punk band Squidge release new single

By Kieran Hadfield

Following the release of ‘Simple Functions’ earlier this year, alternative punk band Squidge have released their brand new single ‘Cardboard Box’. 

Formed in 2015, the four-piece have developed their sound from a range of different genres, merging emo, grunge and post-hardcore. This has culminated in energic performances in the Bristol and Bath area, supporting bands like Sick Joy, Muskets, Phoxjaw and Beans on Toast

Back from their self-organised, nationwide tours last year, the band have dropped their latest track ‘Cardboard Box’- an energetic and bouncy track that will spark crowdsurfing, moshing and wholehearted singalongs from fans. 

Despite this roaring energy, Squidge say this single has a deeper metaphorical meaning, with reflections of memories and life experiences from their deathbed. This metaphor builds up until the song’s ending, with the last line leaving the listener with a fulfilling, yet somber conclusion. 

For fans of Dinosaur Pile-up, Gender Roles and Gnarwolves, you can find Squidge on major streaming services, with the band also appearing on numerous Spotify playlists including: Rocked, The Rock List, Punk Unleashed and Hot New Bands.
