A curious plasticine-fuelled video from the Brighton group...
Porridge Radio

Porridge Radio make morbid pop vibrations with a personal edge.

Reminiscent of The Raincoats ramshackle charm but fused with a slightly more laid back vibe, the Brighton five-piece are a world unto themselves.

A debut album emerged on Memorials of Distinction last year, given a full vinyl press a few weeks back.

Standout cut 'Eugh' seems to burrow itself in the ambient, the interlocked guitar chimes echoing the numbed emotional state of the lyrics.

Ella Margolin directs the curious plasticine-fuelled video, and in an odd kind of way it all feels perfectly apt.

Porridge Radio tell Clash: "It's a sickly sweet saccharine tribute to heartbreak and spitting out the venom of self-loathing. The video itself echoes the feeling of the song with a hypnotic story about relationships forming and falling apart, told by manipulated lumps of clay and nostalgic flashes of scenic views."

Tune in now.

July
1 Brighton Green Door Store
2 London DIY Space for London
