Song of the Day: Porij – Lose Our Minds

The Manchester based quartet exude youthful positivity with impossibly expansive and high-energy songwriting. Not subscribing to any particular genre, exploring pop, r’n’b, funk and jazz – they have received early support from the likes of NME, DIY, Dork and Clash alongside Steve Lamacq, Mary Anne Hobbs, Chris Hawkins and Lauren Laverne – resulting in BBC 6 Music playlists for recent singles ‘Dirty Love’ ‘Closer’ and ‘150’. Love from Huw Stephen’s on BBC Radio 1 as his ‘Ones to watch’ and John Kennedy making the band his ‘Big One’ on Radio X and continued heavy rotation from BBC Introducing. The Oat’s sold out Manchester’s YES, supported Cory Wong at Manchester O2 Ritz prior to lockdown and have plans under way for touring in Autumn 2021.  Eggy (vocal and keys), Tommy (vocal and guitar), Jammo (bass) and Tom (drums) are all currently studying in Manchester. They write, record and produce their modern alternative pop sounds in their student house – each member recording parts in their separate studios/bedrooms and then merging the sounds together meticulously, to form their distinctive “oats” sound. Enjoy Lose Our Minds!
