Today, Dublin band Pillow Queens have released a brand new single entitled ‘Brothers’. Yesterday, it premiered at The FADER where it was described as “open-hearted and unafraid to say it as it is”. The release begins the countdown toward their much anticipated 2020 debut album. The band say the track itself is about cherishing and loving the wonderful men in your life.
They explain further, “the lyrics in the verses show quick snapshots of the aftermath from a loss of a friend within a very tight knit group. An element of fear runs through the song as this sudden death makes you look around your group and feel terrified of the chances of another.”
It touches on a shared grief which drives you to hold dear the memories and moments you have with each other. While this song can be considered one about mourning, its ultimately about the intense love you have for your chosen family.
The track was recorded in Attica Studios, Co. Donegal with producer Tommy McLaughlin. It’s also been released alongside a beautifully cinematic video made with regular collaborator, director Kate Dolan.
After a triumphant run of UK dates in October, including a sell-out show at London’s Shacklewell Arms, the band now travel to play LA’s School Night club and then on to Iceland Airwaves festival in Reykjavik.
