Pillow Queens Release ‘Gay Girls’

‘Gay Girls’ is the latest single from Dublin indie quartet Pillow Queens. It was recorded over two days in Attica Studios in Co. Donegal by Mercury Prize nominated and Choice Music prize winning producer Tommy McLaughlin (Villagers, Soak). Thematically the song touches on feelings of intoxicating lust coupled with relentless repression. These themes are realised through the lyrics and the music which convey an upbeat appreciation of both the negative and positive attributes of both. The theme of religion within ‘Gay Girls’ is also accented nicely by a rapturous choral outro of the song.

Pillow Queens will play dates around the country over the coming weeks, including Galway, Belfast and Limerick along with their biggest headline show to date in Whelans on November 24th.

This is the follow up to their debut EP ‘State of the State’ which came out in March.

Tour dates:

Nov 8th – Roisin Dubh, Galway
Nov 10th – Black Box, Belfast
Nov 24th – Whelans, Dublin
Dec 8th – Dolans, Limerick
