Today has been a crazy day for new releases, especially for records coming out of Ireland. The pick of the bunch may well be Pillow Queens’ debut album ‘In Waiting’.
Combining lo-fi aesthetics with head-nodding rifts, the album is a welcomed addition to the flurry of excellent rock music emanating from the island in 2020.
Bursting with a deliberate sense of urgency, the immediacy of the issues vocalised on the record is reflected in the crashing percussion and confident rifts. Cutting no corners, the delivery throughout is clear and relatable, slicing through much of the noise that has engulfed 2020
