TSS: What was the inspiration behind your latest single, “Squeal?”
SUB-Human: I was doing the usual, experimenting with weird synth designs and came across this really disgusting sound which when manipulated in the right way, sounded like a squeal. I knew I had to write a song around the grossness.

SUB-Human: I have a string of singles that will be coming out on Circus over the next few months, which I’m very excited for! Alongside that, more traveling with my sights set on the US and China.
