If Pillow Queens sound familiar, maybe you saw their recent appearance on The Late Show with James Corden. Or maybe you caught their last release, the highly rated debut LP In Waiting. High profile achievements aside, April saw the release of their sophomore album, Leave The Light On, and Saturday 7th May will see them perform at The Cluny; their new material sees the indie rock outfit take an introspective turn that celebrates the romantic side of loneliness.

Pillow Queens’ brave concept is that loneliness isn’t always synonymous with isolation: it can give vital time for personal reflection and growth. Where other bands might get comfortable in the niche carved out for them, Pillow Queens have decided to keep fans on their toes with an experimental edge to this next chapter. Recorded in only three months over Spring 2021, making this music must have come as naturally as listening to it does. It’s time for them to lay their heart on their line with larger than life sounds which maintain a sense of intimacy with the listener thanks to crooning lyricism and carefree beats. Like a venting session with your best pal, let Pillow Queens ease your mind and soul with their cleansing tunes.

Pillow Queens play The Cluny, Newcastle on Saturday 7th May.
