Pillow Queens emerged onto Dublin’s flourishing underground scene in early 2017, selling out their first ever show. They haven’t looked back since. The band has shared stages with Pussy Riot, Idles and American Football. Through heavy touring and a handful of independent releases, they have grown a loyal fanbase and support at stations like BBC 6music, Radio X and KEXP.
2019 has seen Pillow Queens nominated for Irish Music Prize song of the year, make their first trip to the US to play New York and LA, and stun a packed Reykjavik crowd at Iceland Airwaves festival.
They spent their summer touring Europe and the UK with kindred spirits SOAK, before returning home to begin work on their much-anticipated debut album, due for release in the fall of this year.
Pillow Queens are Rachel, Pam, Cathy and Sarah.
