Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Pillow Queens have spent the past year releasing a clutch of scuzzy, guitar-based rock songs that emulate the likes of Weezer and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They’re sharp and funny: the single “Gay Girls” is a joyous anthem for a generation of young women and LGBT people in Ireland slowly feeling the shackles of oppression come loose. Their first ever gig was at a fundraiser for dogs two years ago – we’re convinced they’ll be playing more prestigious venues in 2019. Their DIY, garage-rock-inspired sound is an exhilarating force of positivity, seemingly embracing all manner of alternative aesthetics while maintaining a distinctively Irish sensibility. Colloquial witticisms are sung with a wink in Irish accents, resulting in songs with such charming familiarity that it’s impossible not to become hooked instantly.’

Thanks so much to our amazing director Kate Dolan for making this happen and everyone who worked on it! We’re so lucky to have gotten such talented young actors to be in it and we’re really excited to share it with you all.
