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.
Crows formed in 2015 and have since built a considerable following for the intensity of their live shows which have seen the band members break bones as well as instruments. Supporting the likes of Girl Band and Wolf Alice in the past, the band will take their deafening live show on the road in support of IDLES.
With a string of successful singles and EPs under their belt, “Silver Tongues” has been a long while coming. Recorded in near total darkness to build a sense of atmosphere, the album fulfills both their early potential and confidently showcases a band comfortable across a variety of sonic avenues. From the monolithic noise-rock of the title track and opener, to the sky-scraping “Demeanour” and “Wednesday’s Child”, to the blissed-out closer “Dysphoria”, each listen reveals new layers, fresh ideas.
