Porridge Radio have shared a new song.

End Of Last Year will feature on the Brighton band's forthcoming sixth album, 'Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky', due out on May 20 via Secretly Canadian. 

Unfurling around heartfelt lyricism, over crashing percussion and rising melancholic keyboard tones, it follows the previously shared opening track, Back To The Radio and The Rip. Head below to view the accompanying animated music video by Maura Sappilo. Vocalist Dana Margolin commented:

"End Of Last Year is a love song for my bandmates and for myself. It’s about not trusting my intuition, not trusting my body to heal itself, not trusting the people closest to me, but it is also an ode to all those people, and to difficult platonic love. It came out of a particularly painful period of communication breakdown and high pressure that hurt a lot, but ended in reconciliation and understanding. The video is by my friend Maura Sappilo. I’ve been a fan of her work for a long time, and I wanted her to make the video for this song because whilst her work is playful and bright, she knows how to bring the dirty and painful and disgusting aspects of being a person and having relationships into her paintings. Her art is lyrical and sensual and painful and beautiful, and I love how she brought all that to this song."

Co-produced by Tom Carmichael, the follow-up to 2020's 'Every Bad' will be accompanied by a series of intimate instore gigs, and their biggest headline tour yet in the autumn, which wraps up with a London show at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on November 3.

They'll also appear at End Of The Road festival in early September, followed by a run of North American tour dates. Head here for details.
