In the heart of Brooklyn's indie/post-punk scene, a band emerges with a ferocious energy that refuses to be contained. Two-Man Giant Squid, signed to the New Jersey indie label Mint 400 Records, has swiftly risen from the depths of obscurity to bask in the limelight of national acclaim. Their debut album, an epic post punk staple captivated audiences and catapulted them into the stratosphere. 

Critics have agreed Two-Man Giant Squid has become synonymous with innovation and authenticity. Their electrifying performances, showcased in historic NYC venues such as Mercury Lounge, Babys All Right, and Arlene's Grocery, have solidified their status as trailblazers in the NY music scene.

Frontman Mitch Vinokur's personal experience as a DJ lends authenticity to the bands newest track, infusing it with a rawness and sincerity that resonates with listeners on a visceral level. It's a love letter to the unsung heroes of the music world, a celebration of their passion and dedication in the face of adversity. 

The enigmatic frontman of Two-Man Giant Squid, shared his insight on the band's latest single, "(I was a DJ in 2015)," with a touch of editorial flair. He reflected, “The track delves into the EDM boom of the tumultuous 2010s, a time when it seemed like everyone you crossed paths with suddenly fancied themselves a DJ. It's our playful yet profound take on a polarizing era in music culture. Picture this: DJs convening at a 'DJs Anonymous' gathering, confronting their harrowing DJ pasts. And believe it or not, it's all rooted in truth...yours truly, Mitch Vinokur, once inhabited the DJ realm before embarking on this musical odyssey with Two-Man Giant Squid.

As music fans and critics rave about Two-Man Giant Squid's distinctive sound and razor-sharp wit, it's clear that the band's influence extends far beyond the confines of Brooklyn. Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of musical influences, from MGMT to Modest Mouse, they have crafted a unique sonic landscape that defies categorization.
