Porridge Radio are a promising new band from Brighton, England. Now the band have shared a brand new song, “Lilac,” via a video for the track. It’s also been announced that Porridge Radio have signed to Secretly Canadian. The “Lilac” video features singer Dana Margolin performing the song on the beach. The rousing song builds to Margolin repeating the same lyrics over and over again (“I don’t want to get bitter, I want us to get better/I want us to be kinder to ourselves and to each other”), shouting them like a mantra. El Hardwick directed the video. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Margolin had this to say about the song in a press release: “I wanted to find some power in powerlessness. I was thinking about love and control and the things out of my control, and how fragile and incapable depression can make you feel. I was thinking about the way you can feel so close to someone that it’s like their body is your body, like there’s no separation between you, but you can’t stop things disintegrating. It’s a song about finding some hope and some future within that.”
