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, and have shared stages with the likes of Soccer Mommy, Alex G, Cherry Glazerr, Goat Girl, Dream Wife and Lydia Lunch.
After a series of demos, and the growing legend of their intense live shows, full-band LP Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers came out via Memorials of Distinction in 2016. Recorded in a garden shed, their lofi debut documents struggles with life, love and boredom, and showcases the scrapbook absurdism at Porridge Radio's core.
In 2019 Porridge Radio made an eagerly anticipated return with their first studio-recordings, the singles ‘Give / Take’ and ‘Don’t Ask Me Twice’. The two tracks offer the first glimpse of an increasingly refined sound, whilst maintaining the earnest vitality of their earlier work.
Porridge Radio has come a long way since beginning as Dana Margolin’s bedroom project in 2012. Now often fronting a racautious 4-piece band, she inelegantly knots together vicious, furious emotional outpour with beautifully melodic pop songs. Here she performs solo - offering an intimate access point to her strikingly raw compositions.
