TUNE Squidge - Cardboard Box
Following the release of “Simple Functions” earlier this year, Squidge are back with their new single "Cardboard Box". Despite it’s bouncy, energetic characteristics, Cardboard Box acts as a metaphorical vessel that reflects upon a person's memories and life experiences from their deathbed. Recollections of naive childhood games, discovering alcohol and sex and the struggles of supporting yourself financially. This “box” awaits a day where it is full, so that it’s owner can unpackage it’s contents to make peace with themselves in preparation for the end. This is exemplified by the final line of the song, ‘Watch the world crumbling, at least I’m not suffering anymore’ leaving the listener with a fulfilling, yet somber conclusion.
