Porij have shared the brand new UK Garage inspired single, "Unpredictable", which is taken from their debut album Teething.

"Unpredictable" follows on from "My Only Love", and their only release of 2023, "You Should Know Me".

The roots of new single lie with a poem Egg wrote about missing the simplicity of their early life but craving the complexity of the future which stretches out before them, as they explain: "These lyrics came from a poem I wrote in November. It was fairly bleak, but in essence was all about missing the simplicity of my early life but craving the complexity of the life that could come. In that period of time everything felt quite up and down and I didn’t really know how I was going to feel from one day to the next."

The four-piece, who have carved a niche at the forefront of Queer-led dance-pop, will perform their biggest London headline show to date, at Electric Ballroom on 24 April, amidst a tour which includes stops in Manchester, Nottingham, Glasgow, Bristol, Leeds, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles. The new album is co-produced by the band and the legendary David Wrench (Frank Ocean, The xx, Young Fathers).

Teething, is set for release on 26 April via Play It Again Sam Records.
