Single Review: SPIRITBOX – Squid Machine

SPIRITBOX - Squid Machine Artwork

SPIRITBOX are a Netherlands based alternative/indie five piece outfit made up of Ruben Schimmel on Guitar/Backings, Nick van Eekelen on Guitar, Jasper Janssens on Bass/Backings, Hans Meertens on Vocals/Keys​/Acoustic Guitar and Tomas Dekkers on Drums/Percussion. This isn’t the first time I’ve reviewed SPIRITBOX and you can check that out here and here. Today, however, I will be reviewing their single ‘Squid Machine’ which was released on May 1th 2020.

‘Squid Machine’ opens up with a sustained low key tune, percussion lightly added on top, along with keys and more just creating a vibrant, yet deep and heavy melody. Having reviewed the group before I knew somewhat what to expect but this track was just especially impactful. When I review a track I’ll listen to it a few times and then once more while actually reviewing but I probably listened to this track about a dozen times, each time just letting the soft and engrossing notes just carry me away. 

So that’s what I thought of SPIRITBOX’s single ‘Squid Machine’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify. Make sure and support the band by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
