Bio

A mainstay of Melbourne's blossoming soul, jazz and disco scene, Squid Nebula have made a name for themselves as one of Melbourne's most fun, dancable live bands - fronted by hypnotic First Nations artist Bumpy (vocals and keys), and supported by one of Melbourne’s tightest and most idiosyncratic rhythm sections.

New EP 'Connectivity', released August 21, 2020, is a celebration of the way human beings interact, form bonds and long for them when they are taken away. 'Connectivity' also represents a common ground in the band's collective influences that falls somewhere between soul, disco, jazz and psychedelia.

On the release of ‘Connectivity’, the band comment that:
“Squid Nebula has always been a project built around collaboration and connectivity. This EP is an exploration of human interaction in its different forms. Revolving around themes of connection, exchange and loss; we are excited to release 'Connectivity' at a time when human connection has never felt more important.”

This tune delivers a quiet complexity that is as enchanting as it is deliciously anguished. The drive of the bass in the chorus is also a personal highlight of this tune for me too.

Big, encompassing voice and the band back it up with this sweltering wiry soul sound.
