O Monolith is the second studio album by British band Squid, released on 9 June 2023 on Warp Records. Produced by Dan Carey, the album was preceded by three singles: “Swing (In a Dream)”, “Undergrowth” and “The Blades”.

Written and recorded in rural Wiltshire, the band described the album as a “musical evocation of environment, domesticity and self-made folklore”. Several of the album’s eight tracks were debuted and workshopped in front of live audiences while touring in support of their debut album, Bright Green Field.

O Monolith was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, with Dan Carey; Carey had previously produced the band’s debut album, Bright Green Field. The band praised the scale, size and location of Real World Studios, which is based in rural Wiltshire: “Just being in a space where you can see the countryside from the big windows was huge. Naturally when playing acoustic instruments with the choir and orchestral components, being in that space allows for it to feel like the music is singing back to you to a certain extent, and you also have some space to write things individually and having another room to work on different pieces was brilliant too.”

Regarding the differences between recording at Real World and Dan Carey’s home studio, the band noted: “It’s, er, very different! Real World is a James Bond baddie base from which Peter Gabriel is planning on taking over the world. Dan’s studio is an old Post Office room in south London.”
