Porridge Radio Have Shared A New Song

A lucid keyboard melody weaves itself around the synth-poppy 7 Seconds, which arrives hard on the heels of the Brighton quartet’s March Mercury Prize-nominated LP, ‘Every Bad’. Unveiling the track on social media, the band wrote:

“7 Seconds started out sounding really different to this version. I wrote the words a few years ago and made a really slow sad song to go with them, but it never felt fully like a porridge band song. Early last year I was sitting with Sam and I played it to him and asked if he could help me speed it up and make it less miserable. He wrote the keyboard riff almost immediately and we were so into it that we listened to the 7 second loop for an hour.

“Late last summer we spent a week in Margate at PRAH studios and showed Maddie and Georgie, and with them the rest of the song came together really fast. We didn’t think we’d get a chance to record it for ages, but some things work out and we’re happy to share it with you now.”

The four-piece will release a new pre-recorded live session tomorrow (September 17) at 7.30PM (BST). The footage was filmed by El Hardwick at St. Giles’ Church, London.

Their headline UK and Ireland tour supporting ‘Every Bad’ has been rescheduled to early 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
