Porridge Radio Releases New Single/Video | Making US Live Debut This Month

Brighton, UK-based band Porridge Radio releases a new single/video, “Circling,” from Every Bad, their forthcoming album out March 13th on Secretly Canadian. It follows previous singles “Sweet” and “Lilac”. “Circling” is led by rhythmic piano and Margolin’s expressive vocals. Its accompanying video, directed by Rachel Winton, Ben Cole, and Tash Lever, features the band.

A lot of the songs on Every Bad are centred around the sea, and Circling was one of the last songs focused on the water that I wrote for the album,” says frontwoman Dana Margolin. “I was thinking on the idea of willing things to be okay by repeating that they are, because I need them to be. I tried to follow the feeling of the flow of waves, and how they keep coming in endlessly, washing everything away without judgment, and then bringing it back again.”

Every Bad arrives full of grand, sweeping ambition – with vocals so urgent that it often feels like it is moved by compulsion rather than choice, with all the rawness of early Karen O, and influences as disparate as Charli XCX and The Cranberries.Though the songs are deeply personal explorations, expressed via a weird, beautiful musical language all Porridge Radio’s own, they extend a hand to every listener who has felt conflicted, held two feelings in their hearts at once, or flailed around the depths of their own choices and relationships. For those of us who know how that feels, Every Bad is a funny, profound little comfort.
