Ireland’s Pillow Queens (aka your new favourite band) have shared an acoustic rendition of their most recent single ‘Favourite’, and it’s just as catchy as the original version. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming EP State of The State, which will be released via Specialist Subject on 16th March.
The group have filmed a video to accompany their acoustic re-working of ‘Favourite’, proving their softer musical arrangements can still pack emotional punch. It’s this kind of charm and energy that permeates their upcoming EP, although there are moments of darkness on State of The State too. The band worked with Producer Peter Ashmore to finalise their musical explorations of “emotional highs and lows”, including the “frustration of trying to succeed in post-recession Ireland” – and the toll that can take on your mental health.
Pillow Queens will be touring Ireland and the UK in April, so make sure you learn all of the words to ‘Favourite’ before you head along to one of their shows (listed below).
