Pitchfork says: “Broadening its sound and tightening its lyrical focus, the Brighton post-punk band conjures mantras of despair and anthems of pure frustration… Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky honors Margolin’s self-appraisal: an inversion of teen-pop that doesn’t engage in time travel so much as allow adult listeners to keep their most immediate and mortifying mindsets close at hand. If they could write uplifting, emotionally mature love songs, I’m not sure they would. Despite noting the influence from the sound and spirit of arena acts like Deftones and Coldplay, Porridge Radio never allow themselves to fully project their pain outward, where it can reach the cheap seats.” Score: 8/10.

Turn Up The Volume: Same musical formula. Slow start, building up in the middle and going ballistic in the end. At times a recipe for disaster as Margolin’s mood swings drive her crazy. She looks like a boyish angel but she’s entangled in her heartbreaking love life. It’s in fact her mind-boggling inner struggle that leads to this soul-cathartic – yet familiar – opus.
