Watch Porridge Radio release ‘Lilac’

They’ve also shared the news that they’ve signed to Secretly Canadian.

Following the release of ‘Give/Take’ and ‘Don’t Ask Me Twice’ earlier this year, Porridge Radio are rounding out 2019 with sizzling newbie ‘Lilac’.

“I wanted to find some power in powerlessness,” frontwoman Dana Margolin explains. “I was thinking about love and control and the things out of my control, and how fragile and incapable depression can make you feel. I was thinking about the way you can feel so close to someone that it’s like their body is your body, like there’s no separation between you, but you can’t stop things disintegrating. It’s a song about finding some hope and some future within that.”

The dreamy track also marks their debut release with Secretly Canadian having recently signed with the label.
