Newcomers Porchlight share their debut single ‘Drywall’ via Brighton’s Only Mellor records.
Despite having just one cruiser to their name so far, Porchlight appear to be a group who have their shit together- or at least, they’re a bunch of musicians with a clear-cut sense of collaboratively accumulated direction.
Capturing an essence of essential traverse which is neither here nor figuratively there, but somewhere altogether alternative, ‘Dry Wall’ is a headfirst dive into an intimately collisional creative space, and Porchlight are the frenzied creatures of their own making.
A euphoric out-roar with Krule-esq diction, a heart full of “willowed countryside” and lilted sparkle championed by the likes of Melbourne’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, ‘Drywall’ is a genre-curving bite out of a rather satiating fruit of bejewelled reminiscence.
This is without a doubt, a group to watch out for.
