With their brand new album ‘Every Bad’ set to land next week (13th March, to be precise), the lovely Porridge Radio have given us our latest taste of what to expect with soaring new track ‘Circling’.
“A lot of the songs on ‘Every Bad’ are centred around the sea, and ‘Circling’ was one of the last songs focused on the water that I wrote for the album,” vocalist Dana Margolin explains. “I was thinking on the idea of willing things to be okay by repeating that they are, because I need them to be. I tried to follow the feeling of the flow of waves, and how they keep coming in endlessly, washing everything away without judgment, and then bringing it back again”.
