When Pillow Queens announced themselves in late 2019 with the soaring single Brothers their bruising interpretation of mourning for a lost loved one immediately caught widespread attention. Channeling wrought emotion through a sea of 90s grunge and indie-rock sounds, the Irish four-piece (from Dublin, Wicklow and Kildare) forge a powerful noise that is all their own – but meant for everyone.
Pillow Queens offer a cathartic experience filled with camaraderie and solidarity. The debut album In Waiting has been widely acclaimed and seen them reach the lofty heights of appearing on James Corden’s Late Late Show for CBS.
