British indie rock band Porridge Radio have returned with the new song “7 Seconds.”
The glittering new tune, produced by Marta Salogni, balances luminous synth lines with distorted guitar riffs. It’s the Brighton four-piece’s second release since their sophomore album Every Bad, which arrived in March and was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize in July.
“‘7 Seconds’ started out sounding really different to how it sounds now,” lead singer Dana Margolin explained in a statement. “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.”
