Pillow Queens Records

Released: 25.09.20








The eagerly awaited debut album from exceptional quartet Pillow Queens does not disappoint, the band’s influences are clearly evident. With an infusing of grunge and a dose of post-punk, In Waiting is a heady mix. The themes that underpin this record are what really bring it to life; the political and social context in which they operate is increasingly evident, and a desire for unity exudes from these impassioned tracks.

Brothers and How Do I Look are clear album highlights, and the tracks which demonstrate Pillow Queens at their most heartfelt. Seething riffs and powerful drums collide within these heavy tracks, with enthused lyrics searing through. A truly brilliant debut record from a band destined for big things.
