Porij - Unpredictable

Serving up another pristine pop production, Porij have returned with their latest UK Garage inspired single "Unpredictable", taken from their debut album Teething, set for release April 26 on Play It Again Sam Records (Nation Of Language, Editors and Lykke Li). On the new single, Porij say: "These lyrics came from a poem I wrote in November. It was fairly bleak, but in essence was all about missing the simplicity of my early life but craving the complexity of the life that could come. In that period of time everything felt quite up and down and I didn’t really know how I was going to feel from one day to the next." Sharing further insight on the single's kaleidoscopic accompanying video, director Maxi McLachlan comments: "It’s weird to say my main point of reference was video game character building menus, but that’s where it started! The point was to try and create a video where Egg is constantly rotating but their clothes transform until it becomes so extreme that they warp into other band members. When we first discussed the video we knew we wanted it to reflect the chaotic but very carefully produced track. I wanted to create the feeling that Porij becomes so unpredictable that not even the machines can handle it and the whole thing shatters." Take a watch/listen to the danceable number for yourselves below.
