This week sees Porij announce the details to their much-anticipated debut album, Teething, set for release April 26th on Play It Again Sam Records. Coinciding with the news, the outfit have shared their latest single My Only Love which comes packed in funky breaks, catchy melodies and an abundance of danceable energy. On the new single, Porij say: "I went to see ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ at the National Theatre and was completely struck by a moment in the closing monologue which has the line “Dancing with eyes half-closed because to open them would break the spell.” This felt so fitting to how I was immediately dealing with the conflict I was experiencing. The power of succumbing to denial felt particularly inviting. Over time the lyrics settled and this song anchors on the thoughts in the bridge saying ‘I don’t know if this will be my forever love but it’s my only love for now’. It’s easy to put pressure on a long term relationship but through this song I remembered to enjoy each moment and not take things too seriously." Take a watch below with the Maxi McLachlan directed clip.
