Porij on Bandcamp.
Glad the 22, A Million choir escaped Justin Vernon. “I love how this “My Only Love” sounds nice in my headphones and I’m sure I would be terribly bored if I saw this live at some half-full club. That half-full club will be full of media people who don’t understand music, which is why this band will succeed anyway. Turns out The 1975 without Matt Healy is just boring. This still sounds glossy and would still sound great in some airport. Am I supposed to pronounce Porij like Porridge? Art! At least there’s melody. Everyone in this band dresses too semi-cool to take seriously. Look at all these people in love. OK! When will the Grammys release a “Progressive Indie” category.
