Releasing their first new music since 2016, Porridge Radio have been anything but quiet in the two years leading up to today. Having steadily built a live following and reputation for their live shows in their hometown of Brighton, second home London and beyond, the band return today with a hotly anticipated new single in the form of 'Give/Take', released via Memorials of Distinction (which the band play a part in running). Equal parts melodic and ferocious, with an addictive groove and vocals that build from direct and droll to exhilaratingly passionate, the track displays the band's constant, exciting evolution and individuality. Speaking of the track the band's Dana Margolin says: "it's a song about desire and confusion and being a robot with constantly changing emotions (have i been programmed?). it's about not knowing what your personality is if your thoughts and feelings and opinions change with your mood and your mood changes before you can catch up with it. "it's also about learning how to know what you need, how to ask for it, how to take it. and because of that it's also about guilt and longing and how they are constantly in dialogue with each other and how they can contradict each other. it's about knowing what you need but not knowing how to accept that or how to get it."
