PORRIDGE RADIO // Eugh [single]

Buried in the denouement of Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers, ‘Eugh’ (lyrically guarded; a blister of vulnerability) introduces a new video directed by Ella Margolin. Visually therapeutic, the track’s gentle jangling of guitar rippling beneath mellifluous vocals acts as the numbing tingle after a antiseptic wipe, whilst losing you to the peculiar shapes and movements in the clay, and echoes the track fully.

Euphoric vocals are cut abruptly by bellows and comments of “don’t be a jerk”. To-ing and fro-ing between these two states, the song, alongside its new video, exhibits a chamber of nostalgia, hope, disappointment, expectation.

Brighton’s Porridge Radio are set to tour this summer on the following dates:

01/07 Brighton Green Door Store
02/07 London DIY Space for London
03/07 Bristol The Old England Pub
04/07 Cardiff Gwdihw Cafe Bar
05/07 Manchester Jimmy’s NQ Bar
07/07 Glasgow Transmission Gallery
