Porij are a lively, indie-pop four-piece, who merge together exciting beats with an enthusiastic stage presence and last week they headlined Manchester’s Soup Kitchen, where they brought their unbeatable energy along with them.
The room filled up early on and the audience were warmed up by Ronald Raygun and Leisure Theory. The crowd were ready for the gig, dancing along before Porij even walked on the stage.
Porij fuse animated rhythms and synth lines with dynamic vocals. The band only have two songs available online, with their debut single, I Like That being released less than a year ago and more recently Closer, which came out in November.
Their music layers together multiple sounds, creating dance-worthy music, which rippled through the underground venue throughout the whole performance.
Each song the band performed was just as captivating as the last, the basement bouncing with every beat and the passion held by the band was shining through their performance.
The band didn’t stop smiling and they didn’t stop moving along for the whole ser, an attitude which was contagious as the audience allowed the band to take over the room with their music and danced along with them.
