Porridge Radio return with new single "7 Seconds"

2020 Mercury Prize nominees Porridge Radio have returned with new single "7 Seconds".

"7 Seconds" is the group's first new outing since teaming up with Lala Lala on "Good For You" in July.

The new track also marks Porridge Radio's first release as the lead artist since their March debut album Every Bad, which has since been nominated for the 2020 Mercury Prize.

Lead vocalist Dana Margolin says of their new single, ""7 Seconds" started out sounding really different to how it sounds now. A few years ago I wrote a really slow, long and drawn out song about the end of something that was never right. I was sitting with Sam early last year and I played it to him and asked him if he could help me make it less miserable. He wrote the main keyboard riff almost immediately and it came together really quickly after that; we re-structured and re-arranged it and added the end part, which I think of lyrically as a kind of conversation between two different versions of myself."

Porridge Radio's "7 Seconds" single is out now.
