Pillow Queens

Pillow Queens

Pillow Queens are a Dublin-based indie rock band known for their distinctive sound, introspective lyrics, and dynamic performances.

Formed in 2016, Pillow Queens is made up of Pamela Connolly, Sarah Corcoran, Cathy McGuinness and Rachel Lyons. They burst onto the scene with their debut demo EP Calm Girls, leading to a string of UK and Irish dates and festival appearances.

The release of their follow up EP State of the State prompted Hot Press to write the band is, "currently lauded by any critic worth their salt." Their debut album In Waiting arrived in 2020 and received praise from The Guardian, who called them 2020’s most exciting indie rockers. They were named the Band To Watch by Stereogum, received an Irish Album of The Year nomination and made their first U.S. national television appearance remotely on the Late Late Show with James Corden.

They are not the first artists for whom the experience of growing up in Ireland has had a profound impact upon their artistic output, themes of inclusivity and acceptance abound. The weight of all this is quite apparent as you listen, and whilst their sound is quite poppy, with distorted guitars et al the lyrics and their delivery are pointed and serious beans.

With a couple of albums worth of tunes to go at, we are really looking forward to absorbing their energy at the festival this year.
