Porridge Radio have launched their new track, ‘7 Seconds’

The band are up for next week's Mercury Prize.

Porridge Radio have launched their new track, ‘7 Seconds’.

The song arrives ahead of an El Hardwick-filmed live session, which will go live this week – from Thursday 17th September at 7.30pm BST / 2.30pm ET.

Singer Dana Margolin says of the track: “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.”

The Brighton band are also up for this year’s Mercury Prize with their album ‘Every Bad’; the winner will stop by The One Show for the big reveal on Thursday 24th September. Competition comes from Charli XCX, Dua Lipa, Georgia, Sports Team and more.
