Brighton-based band Porridge Radio has shared 'Circling', which is another slice from their upcoming album Every Bad.  The album is due for release this Friday, March 13th via Secretly Canadian. Also set to appear on the album will be their previous singles 'Lilac' and 'Sweet'.

The ever-so-exquisite 'Circling' appears as a rushing sea of emotions, which only escalates as the song progresses. The vocals of Dana Margolin shine on the track — first appearing soft and meditative like gentle waves, Margolin emphasises that everything is 'fine' before things intensify just like a tsunami and the aftermath is devastating.

On 'Circling', Margolin said, "A lot of the songs on Every Bad are centered around the sea, and 'Circling' was one of the last songs focused on the water that I wrote for the album." Also adding, "I was thinking on the idea of willing things to be okay by repeating that they are, because I need them to be. I tried to follow the feeling of the flow of waves, and how they keep coming in endlessly, washing everything away without judgment, and then bringing it back again."
