New Portals have released their brand new single, ‘Inch’. The song is a stark tale of heartbreak from the duo and features dark pulsating bass among atmospheric synths and smooth percussive clicks.
Regarding the new single New Portals say, “The song is about the difficult decision to be made in a relationship when it seems like the spark has gone.”
‘Inch’ has been selected to feature in the soundtrack for the forthcoming feature film Faces from the award-winning director Joseph A. Adesunloye. It’s the latest in a number of film and TV syncs for New Portals. Their previous single ‘Chasing Shade’ was recently featured in the Striking Out TV show and their single ‘Cage’ formed the soundtrack to the feature film She Has A Name last year.
‘Inch’ is the first taste of new music from New Portals following the release of their highly acclaimed EP Stereo last year, which saw the pair receive high profile support from the likes of Vogue, Clash, Line Of Best Fit and many more.
New Portals have also received strong support from BBC Radio 1, with Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens particularly big champions of the band at the station. They’ve been featured in a host of high profile Spotify playlists and receive regular in-store rotation at a number of leading UK high street brands too.
