Pillow Queens

Pillow Queens are Ireland’s most urgent, yearning, queer indie-rock band. Made up of Sarah, Pamela, Rachel, and Cathy they channel their thoughts on the world around them through their precision songwriting.

They’ve shared their brand new single ‘Holy Show’ featuring the band’s signature catchy guitar licks and angsty vocals, taken from their upcoming debut album In Waiting.

Pillow Queens have started feeling the love in Australia for their most recent single ‘Handsome Wife’, from the likes of Triple J, RRR, Frankie Magazine, The Australian, Music Feeds and many more. Around the world they have been praised by the likes of The Guardian, NME, Clash, The Line Of Best Fit, Dork, BBC Radio 1 and Gig Wise to name a few. Having played Festivals in Europe and due to play SXSW this year, the band have solidified their status as “One To Watch” in 2020. Not too long ago they crossed shores to play shows in the USA and have their eyes set on visiting Australia as soon as they can.

In Waiting is their debut album set for release worldwide on September 25. In Waiting is the result of four years of brotherly love in a sisterly unit. Crafted from their lives, and honed in a studio in rural Donegal in the northwest of Ireland, this is a record by queens in waiting and kings in the making. Why are we waiting?

Waiting. Waiting for futures to be carved out, for missions to be complete, for communities to be solidified, for the security denied to a generation to return. Waiting for the empathic revolution. Waiting for the end of capitalism, and the start of something real and fair. Waiting for spin to die and authenticity to be valued. Waiting for lost loves to return and fumbled relationships to form, for small cracks in families to heal and bigger cracks in inequitable systems to break. You’re in waiting a long time. And then you just have to do it yourself.
