Having first come together in the autumn on the basketball courts of a Dublin city park, the four members of PILLOW QUEENS soon realised that making music together would be an equally productive group activity. Cathy plays guitar and sings, Rachel plays drums and sings, Pam and Sarah swap guitar, bass and lead vocal duties.
The bands songs quickly found their way into the hearts of new fans in the local underground DIY scene and onto BBC Radio 6 Music playlists, with Steve Lamacq calling them “deceptively infectious, with sharp hooks and sharp nails.”
PILLOW QUEENS second EP, 'State of the State', was released in April 2018 on UK DIY label Specialist Subject Records to continued critical acclaim, with DIY Mag saying: “vocals overlap and interchange brilliantly, with a positive gang mentality evident from the off, even if they’re belting out lyrics on some pretty difficult subject matter.” The EP release was supported by a full UK and Irish tour, culminating in a sold-out home town show at Whelan's.
The band have since opened for PussyRiot at their debut Irish performance and supported Future Islands in front of a stadium crowd in Dublin. Their summer has been spent playing festivals throughout UK and Ireland( including our own The Irish Times 'Gig of the Week' Summer PaRtY!).
2019 will see the release of the bands debut album and extensive European and UK tour dates.
