Set for release on 20th May, Porridge Radio have announced their brand new album ‘Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder To The Sky’.
Sharing lead single ‘Back To The Radio’ alongside the news, Dana Margolin says, ‘“Back To The Radio’ feels like a huge introductory hello or a big ceremonial goodbye. I wrote it at the end of 2019 when we were gearing up for the release of Every Bad and I felt like a lot of things were coming that I wasn’t sure I knew how to handle. The song grew out of a feeling of intense loneliness and being unprepared for what everybody was promising me was about to happen – and a strong desire to escape without knowing what I wanted to escape to. To me there’s a huge feeling of catharsis in this song, of letting go and letting it sweep you away.”
