Rising newcomers Porij unveil their dreamy new single today titled ‘My Only Love’. If that wasn’t exciting enough the band also announced their full-length debut album, ‘Teething’, set for release 26th April via Play It Again Sam.

The band has been establishing their reputation in the live circuit and has previously released some outstanding singles. Their latest single, ‘My Only Love’ is an instant classic that resonates beautifully to our ears. This emotive banger features soulful and heartfelt vocals set against a light dance production, enriched with touches of UK garage. Porij have effortlessly captured our hearts with this new release, leaving us extremely excited for what’s to come! About the new song they mention:

“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.

My Only Love‘ is out now on all platforms. ‘Teething‘ arrives April 26th via Play It Again Sam.
