Porridge Radio are fast shaping up to be one of the best underground groups in the country.
The band's sound moves from strict control to chaos, engaging and unsettling at the same time.
Set to play two shows at Brighton's mammoth new music showcase The Great Escape, the group will then support Ezra Furman at a select batch of UK dates.
New single 'Don't Ask Me Twice' seems to sum up their wicked charms, self-described as sitting somewhere between Micachu & The Shapes and Cat Power.
Leaning towards post-punk in its deconstructive sensibilities, there's also this delirious pop edge, ranging from the tropical edge in the rhythm to those frisky synths.
Porridge Radio's Dana Margolin says...
"For me, 'Don’t Ask Me Twice' is a song about suddenly noticing where you are and being surprised to find yourself in your own body in that place. When we play it live it feels like it’s all going to fall apart at any moment, but then it kind of pulls back and falls into place again, and then suddenly the chaos comes back and everything feels so intense."
"For me it’s about embracing the chaos because you can’t escape it, and accepting how you can have really contradicting feelings and thoughts all at the same time in your own head, and how that’s ok. It’s part of figuring it out. Scream: I don’t know what I want! It feels good."
