Their new album, ‘Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky’, lands later this month.

Ahead of the release of their new album ‘Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky’ on 20th May via Secretly Canadian, Porridge Radio are sharing their latest single ‘End Of Last Year’.

“‘End Of Last Year’ is a love song for my bandmates and for myself,” Dana Margolin explains. “It’s about not trusting my intuition, not trusting my body to heal itself, not trusting the people closest to me, but it is also an ode to all those people, and to difficult platonic love. It came out of a particularly painful period of communication breakdown and high pressure that hurt a lot, but ended in reconciliation and understanding.

“The video is by my friend Maura Sappilo. I’ve been a fan of her work for a long time, and I wanted her to make the video for this song because whilst her work is playful and bright, she knows how to bring the dirty and painful and disgusting aspects of being a person and having relationships into her paintings. Her art is lyrical and sensual and painful and beautiful, and I love how she brought all that to this song.”
