“Lilac” Porridge Radio

“Lilac” is the final in a trio of singles that Porridge Radio have released this year. The Brighton, England band’s Lead singer Dana Margolin’s repetitive, direct lyrics fast become mantras for a fervent and steadily-growing fan base.

The “Lilac” video was directed by El Hardwick and features Margolin. “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” she sings to a crescendo – the pinnacle of the angst-driven therapy she has spent expertly carving out since the formation of the band.“I wanted to find some power in powerlessness,” says Margolin. “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.”
