Finally! After three long years since debut Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers, Porridge Radio have shared new material: stellar single ‘Give / Take’.
Stepping into a full-blown studio for the first time, the track puts Dana Margolin’s emotive vocals into focus against a tightly knit groove. It builds from a simplistic count-in and plodding bass, and eventually spirals out into swirling synths and a chorus hanging on the end of the phone. The chaos of RP&OF has (almost) been ironed into perfect pop.
Porridge Radio give the impression they’d stylishly swan-dive from the back of a plane without giving a parachute a second thought. If ‘Give / Take’ is anything to go by, they’d land on their feet.
