Label: Secretly Canadian
Released: 20th May 2022
Coming fresh off the back of ‘Every Bad’, their 2020 album that perhaps unexpectedly but certainly deservedly made the Mercury Prize shortlist, Porridge Radio find themselves in a moment where the glare has never fallen quite so intensely upon them.
It’s a pressure that undoubtedly will have impacted the creation of new full-length ‘Waterslide, Diving Board, ‘Ladder To The Sky’, but not one that clips its wings. Like a diamond formed under a weight of expectation, instead it’s quite possibly the most concentrated form of everything that makes the band special to date. Full of emotion and expression, their ascent isn’t over yet.
