Porridge Radio Announce New Album <i>Every Bad</i>, Share New Single "Sweet"

Brighton quartet Porridge Radio have shared the details of their second album Every Bad, out on March 13 via Secretly Canadian. They’ve also unveiled a new single “Sweet,” which follows “Give/Take,” “Don’t Ask Me Twice” and “Lilac.” Plus, they’ve added tour stops in Brooklyn and Los Angeles when they’re over in the States for SXSW in March.

“Sweet,” which comes with a Sam Hiscox-directed video, is filled with strange fixations and snarled displays of confidence. Their sinister guitar rapture meets Dana Margolin’s vigorous and tantalizing lead vocals, boiling over as she realizes that her long-held shame has finally been replaced with charm and conviction. Claiming victory over one’s nerves has rarely been spat with such powerful self-belief or backed with such melodic clamor.

“‘Sweet’ is a song about holding grudges and learning how to have fun and letting go of an old version of yourself,” Margolin says. “I was feeling light-hearted when I wrote it, but when we came together to play it as a band, it suddenly felt really dramatic and exciting. When we play it live, the energy in the room always feels really intense, and then suddenly we just explode altogether and it always feels really good.”
