Porridge Radio have released a transcendent cover of ‘Happy In A Crowd’, A track first released by Chicago singer-songwriter Bobby Burg through his project Love Of Everything.

In a statement, frontwoman Dana Margolin explained that she was inspired to cover the track which first appeared on Burg’s 2000 released album “Drinking Feeling”.

“I remember watching Bobby perform for the first time and being completely captivated,” she said.

Porridge Radio have returned with a cover of Midwestern band Love of Everything’s “Happy in a Crowd.” The gloomy new cover is pretty unique, as it comes packed with silky shoegaze vocals atop a deeper trap beat, making for a perfectly peculiar blend of genres. Porridge Radio’s Dana Margolin came across Love of Everything when her old band Garden Centre was an opener for them, and the track really stuck with her.

“A song that really stuck with me was ‘Happy In A Crowd’, and this bleak January I learnt how to play it on guitar after Bobby randomly got in touch, and sent my cover to Sam [Yardley] who had never heard the song before.

“We made this cover together, with Sam producing it, and we’re really happy with how it turned out. I feel like something has come full circle through releasing this cover and I’m so glad we get to share it.”
