Porridge Radio Share Video for New Song ‘End of Last Year’

    Porridge Radio have released a new song called ‘End of Last Year’, lifted from their upcoming album Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky. The track, which follows previous singles ‘Back to the Radio’ and ‘The Rip’, arrives with an accompanying video. Check it out below, along with Porridge Radio’s upcoming tour dates.

    “‘End of Last Year’ is a love song for my bandmates and for myself. It’s about not trusting my intuition, not trusting my body to heal itself, not trusting the people closest to me, but it is also an ode to all those people, and to difficult platonic love,” Dana Margolin explained in a statement. “It came out of a particularly painful period of communication breakdown and high pressure that hurt a lot, but ended in reconciliation and understanding.”

    She added: “The video is by my friend Maura Sappilo. I’ve been a fan of her work for a long time, and I wanted her to make the video for this song because whilst her work is playful and bright, she knows how to bring the dirty and painful and disgusting aspects of being a person and having relationships into her paintings. Her art is lyrical and sensual and painful and beautiful, and I love how she brought all that to this song.”

    Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky is set to arrive on May 20 via Secretly Canadian.
