Pillow Queens formed in Dublin in Winter 2016.
Their EP, State of the State, made its way onto BBC 6 Music’s and Radio X’s playlists, with Steve Lamacq calling them “deceptively infectious, with sharp hooks and sharp nails”.
This led to the band working with Mercury Prize nominated producer Tommy McLaughlin for their next single “Gay Girls” – which received a nomination for the RTE Choice Music Prize song of the year, as well as International airplay on NPR’s World Cafe & KEXP.
2019 saw Pillow Queens undertake a full European tour supporting Soak. The band are working on their debut album due for release in 2020.
