Fast rising Brighton band PORRIDGE RADIO, led by charismatic singer-songwriter Dana Margolin, release their second album ‘EVERY BAD‘ on 13 March via Secretly Canadian. The famous former British journalist Everett True (real name: Jeremy Andrew Thackray) who wrote for two legendary UK magazines Melody Maker and NME and who played in various bands himself called Porridge Radio the best band in the world after seeing them play for only 40 seconds a couple of years ago.
I saw the group myself in Amsterdam in 2018 in a small club. I witnessed four young, nervous people who looked and sounded like lo-fi romantic indie punks. Hard and soft, anarchic and sweet, chaotic and intense, passionate and plainspoken with frontwoman Dana Margolin trying to connect with the audience. To be honest I didn’t get Everett True‘s statement, although I felt an intriguing attraction because of the band’s zestful sonority and charming enthusiasm. After their try and error DIY debut LP Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers of 2016 the foursome took time to prepare for their next step.
Based on the tracks they have already shared, new LP ‘EVERY BAD’ is definitely a whole other experience. Although Margolin says that the longplayer is about “figuring out how I want to exist in relation to others, and how to process my own feelings, how to be vulnerable, how to show people how I feel” you’ll hear a reborn band with a fuller and more vehement sound, with more confidence, with forceful panache and most important of all with killer songs.
Here’s the newest cut. ‘SWEET‘ is an overwhelming loudQUIETloud crackerjack with Margolin‘s repeating frequently ‘I’m charming, I’m sweet and she will loves me when she
meets me‘. PORRIDGE RADIO will be big soon. FACT!
