Looking fine, looking good, looking great—looking for a funky flex with satiated storytelling that'll stimulate the senses? Well, then we've got you, but most importantly, Squid The Kid has got you on this musically tasty track, First Glance, featuring Dann Dib.
The Kid has been cooking with First Glance, slapping listeners with a whole lot of indie sleaze and a cup full of coolness. Squid The Kid continuously connects the audience to his music through his hyper-spirited artistry, down-to-earth delivery, and a mouthful of Hip-Hop references that the 90s babies won't glaze over. Think Big Pun, Big Sean, and a Breezy crossover, then add a sprinkle of Purple Rain tones, and base it on the streets of Melbourne; that's a snippet of the Squid The Kid recipie.
Inject Dann Dib into the mix, and you become the spectator to an old Hollywood movie that pays homage to the jazzy cool cat aesthetic. First Glance takes you on a first-player trip when you come into contact with a PYT (pretty young thing). The hormones start pumping into the curiousity of lust, and questions of love arise.
"First Glance is a song about a first date type of scenario. First dates and spending time with someone who has caught your attention are situations that are always hard to gauge, especially with the limited amount of time spent. Generally, the best-case scenario is that you fall in love with the person opposite you from the jump; for others, it could be the worst time of your lives and you will probably never see one another again, but for some, it honestly could just be a bit of work in progress, but there is just an underlying feeling between both parties that keeps bringing them back together for another date. Stated above is essentially the main story line of this new single, ‘First Glance’, with of course a hint of humour and playfulness, which both me and Dann Dib bring to the forefront with our light-hearted lyrics." - Squid The Kid
The outro presents an opportunity for instrumental appreciation, a space where listeners can indulge in the Jazzy, Hip-Hop-Funk.
"After the release of ‘Getaway, which was a more dancy electronic song, I really wanted to bring it back to my roots a bit and have that more jazzy feel. People are probably bored of hearing this specific man's name come out of my mouth, but ‘Jewelz’ by Anderson Paak was a song me and the guys were playing constantly, so naturally that influenced the making of ‘First Glance." - Squid The Kid
Squid The Kid and Dann Dib are constantly on the move, with The Kid wrapping up a recent show at the Bergy Bandroom with max Melbourne, Kid Drest, and Mizuki, as well as his set at the Yours and Owls event in Wollongong, and Dann making moves in the UK—the drops won't stop. The Kid is back in the studio as we speak, with more music, otw!
