Announce debut album In Waiting for September 25th via Pillow Queens Records – Share video for new single “Handsome Wife” out Friday 12th June
We’ve been waiting for this one for a while now! Pillow Queens are (possibly) the next Irish act about to explode, and they’ve just announced details of their debut album which will be released in September. The album is called In Waiting and has ten tracks. The most intriguing title is definitely Child Of Prague but we’ll wait and see! The single ‘Handsome Wife’ is released tomorrow.
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. Channelling wrought emotion through a sea of 90s grunge and indie-rock sounds, the four-piece forge a powerful noise that is all their own – but meant for everyone. Pillow Queens offer a cathartic experience filled with camaraderie and solidarity.
Inclusivity, choice, and togetherness are just some words that chime loudly with Pillow Queens, and today’s new single “Handsome Wife” arrives at a time when those words have rarely had more impact.In a physically, and morally, divided world “Handsome Wife” looks at the importance of life’s often underappreciated moments, as the band explains: “Handsome Wife begins with a glimpse into an emotional homecoming, one that intensifies and romanticises the seemingly insignificant. Throughout, the mundane but tender moments are held up and deified, paying reverence to the ease in which a love can thrive outside the realms of tradition. The song continuously references structures and rituals that were once out of reach, but are now within our grasp. In spite of this Handsome Wife affirms that they pale in comparison to the communities we’ve built ourselves.”
