Formed in 2016, Pillow Queens have released 2 EPs, 2 albums and are currently working on their third album which will be released through Canadian record label Royal Mountain Records in 2024. The band have toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and North America, including performances at SXSW in Austin and opening for Phoebe Bridgers in Glasgow.
Off the back of the latest album’s release, Pitchfork said Pillow Queens make the kind of noise that tends to flourish live, roared back by the faithful: burnished heartland euphoria, defiant lyricism bolstered by ragged harmonies, lashings of pride, and an unabashed love of crescendos; while The Guardian said Sonically, the album evokes the work of Americana-influenced alt-rock musicians such as Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten and even the Killers – a sound that is both epically transcendent and comfortingly gritty.
