PORRIDGE RADIO – ” You Are A Runner And I Am My Father’s Son / New Slang ” Cover’s

Posted: July 27, 2021 in MUSIC

Sub Pop Records is pleased to announce the release of Porridge Radio’s cover of The Shins’ “New Slang,”! The song is the B-side from the group’s forthcoming contribution to the subscription-only Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6. The A-side, Porridge Radio’s cover of Wolf Parade’s “You Are A Runner And I Am My Father’s Son” will be available on August 9th.

Beginning as Dana Margolin’s sadcore bedroom project, Porridge Radio developed into an idiosyncratic post-punk 4-piece after she moved to Brighton and met her future bandmates. They inelegantly knot together Margolin’s vicious, furious emotional outpourings with beautiful pop melodies. After a series of demos, and the growing legend of their intense live shows, their lofty debut “Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers” came out via Memorials of Distinction in 2016, documenting struggles with life, love and boredom, and showcases the scrapbook absurdism at Porridge Radio’s core.

The band’s 2020 Secretly Canadian debut, “Every Bad”, is a culmination of what has been in their head for some time. Every Bad arrived full of grand, sweeping ambition – with vocals so urgent that it often feels like it is moved by compulsion rather than choice, with all the rawness of early Karen O, and influences as disparate as Charli XCX and The Cranberries. After receiving wide critical acclaim across the board, Every Bad was shortlisted as one of the Hyundai Mercury Prize’s albums of 2020.
