Finding new bands is always a thing that makes this gig more enjoyable. We’d heard of Brighton’s Porridge Radio before they signed to Secretly Canadian, but all we’d heard was how intense they were. Now with their new single “Sweet” they prove that intensity and bring their post-punk sound full circle ahead of their upcoming debut album Every Bad.
The song is more intense than the band’s lead single. The dark tones that surround the harsher moments hit ard and never leave you. The way the vocals and guitar cut in like a bad radio signal are masterful in a way that you cannot forget. The way the band builds an easy going pace before obliterating it is stirring and on its own. Porridge Radio has their own sound and this song quickly proves why they’re so well regarded.
The video can be watched above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all streaming sites. Every Bad is available to preorder on multiple formats ahead of its March 13 release directly from Secretly Canadian. Porridge Radio is on tour beginning tonight at Sister Midnight Records in London, UK until May 22 through 24 in Dartington, UK at Sea Change Festival. Their tour schedule can be found here.
