This Week’s hottest brand new act...
KEY TRACK: Give/Take
LABEL/MANAGEMENT: Memorials Of Distinction
WHO: Porridge Radio is the brainchild of Brighton DIY musician Dana Margolin, who has gradually coaxed the project from her bedroom, adding extra musicians along the way.
WHAT: Spindly guitars, lurid lyrics and indie choruses to remember. Porridge Radio are rather more appealing than the gloopy imagery their name evokes.
WHERE: The band are based on the south coast, but London is something of a second home these days.
INDIE CHORUSES TO REMEMBER!
Yes, you’re right to be excited. More bands would do well to emphasise the pay-off that comes with a good chorus, just as Porridge Radio do on new single Give/Take, which stitches its heart onto its sleeve via candid lyrics.
CANDID YOU SAY?
The project has always been about emotional honesty. Ever since 2016 album Rice Pasta And Other Fillers, Margolin has portrayed the confusions of modern life excellently.
ANY GIGS COMING UP?
Yes indeed. Porridge Radio tour the UK this week, calling at London’s Set on April 19.
