Watch Porridge Radio Cover Leonard Cohen’s ‘Who by Fire’

    Porridge Radio have shared a cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Who by Fire’, which originally appeared on the 1974 album New Skin For The Old Ceremony. The performance was filmed by El Hardwick at St Giles’ Church in Camberwell, London. Check it out below.

    “I’ve loved Leonard Cohen since I was a teenager, and when he died we learnt this song in tribute to him,” Porridge Radio’s Dana Margolin wrote on Instagram. “It’s always been a favourite of ours so we were really happy to record it for our session at St Giles’ Church, Camberwell. The lyrics are from the Jewish liturgy for the new year (Rosh Hashana), and this was filmed the same week as Rosh Hashana this year.”

    Porridge Radio issued their sophomore LP Every Bad earlier this year. They recently released a new track titled ‘7 Seconds’.
