BBC Music Sound Of 2020 has revealed its longlist of artists who are tipped for success next year
Et bien sûr il y a Squid dans le top ten!
Pour rappel Squid est le groupe que le festival This is England avait invité pour l’édition 2018. c’était alors leur premier concert hors de Grande Bretagne!!
Voici ce que la BBC en dit: «
Style: In their own words: “The Coronation Street theme tune played on flutes by angry children”
Sleeve notes: The Brighton band’s opus, the seven minutes of sick funk called The Cleaner, comes on like a collision between The B-52s and The Fall – a group aiming to be the next Coldplay this is not. The spirit of Postcard Records luminaries such as Orange Juice and Josef K can also be heard amidst the angsty, nervous twitch of their music.
Critics say: “Their unconventional nature is their most appealing asset. There’s no established frontman, no three-minute pop songs, and yet somehow they made the BBC6 A-List with a track about houseplants.” (DIY Magazine)
They say: “We are the first generation that’s been brought up with the internet in developing periods of our lives. It means that genre is much less definable, it’s not about living in the same city, it’s having something else that draws you together.”
Song to start with: The Cleaner
