TV Priest, the London quartet come in the wake of the post-punk revival of the past few years, encompassing everyone from Fat White Family to Shame to Girl Band, Fontaines DC and, of course, the titans of the genre, Idles. The movement has gone mainstream, it is part of the rock firmament of the UK, and to a lesser extent, the US.
The Irish band released Uppers, their debut full-length for Sub Pop Records last February 5th, 2021.
With song titles like ‘Handsome Wife’ and ‘Gay Girls’, it’s safe to say Dublin four piece Pillow Queens are not the typical guitar band coming out of Dublin at the moment. Their debut album, In Waiting, is already out.
Offering early ’90s Seattle vibes and anthemic singalongs, the four-piece also present something a little bit different to the likes of all-male outfits such as Murder Capital, Fontaines DC, and Girl Band.
And they themselves feel part of a different kind of scene anyway. “Anytime there’s a reference to Dublin guitar rock, we’re like, ‘hold on, why are they not mentioning the lesbian guitar scene that’s about to blossom in Dublin,’” ponders guitarist and vocalist Sarah Corcoran.
