Porridge Radio are back with a new song, a cover of "Happy in a Crowd" by Chicago lo-fi artist Love is Everything (aka Bobby Burg). “In 2016, I joined the band Garden Centre and we did a very DIY UK tour supporting Love of Everything," writes Porridge Radio's Dana Margolin. "I remember watching Bobby perform for the first time and being completely captivated. Bobby’s live set was really spontaneous and playful, but still managed to convey something really profoundly intimate. Bobby’s sets really showed me the way that a song can change every time you play it live, and that you can embrace the unpredictable and chaotic and fun parts of songs and they can still be perfect and hit really hard."
Dana adds, "A song that really stuck with me was 'Happy In A Crowd,' and this bleak January I learnt how to play it on guitar after Bobby randomly got in touch, and sent my cover to Sam [Yardley] who had never heard the song before. We made this cover together, with Sam producing it, and we’re really happy with how it turned out. I feel like something has come full circle through releasing this cover and I’m so glad we get to share it.”
