Can’t decide what you love more: dogs or new music? Well, thanks to Dublin’s Pillow Queens you don’t have to. The indie band have shared a new video to accompany their recent single ‘Favourite’ and it’s a perfect combination of the two.
“The video was borne from the artistic insights of the wonderful Bob Gallagher, combined with our sheer passion and fondness for all things canine,” the band explain about their dog-tastic new offering. “The idea was to bring to life a work which followed the retro look of old Antiques Roadshow episodes and was heavily influenced by Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Best in Show and 80’s prom portraits or – in the case of this particular video – “pawtraits” of dogs and their owners. The National Show centre was the setting for the video while the individual “pawtraits” were shot in All Out Design Studios and feature a mixture of friends of the band and doggo-loving volunteers.”
‘Favourite’ is taken from Pillow Queens’ forthcoming EP State of The State, which is set to be released via Bristol-based label Specialist Subject on 16th March. The band will be touring the UK & Ireland to celebrate their new record, starting with a show at the Irish Cultural Centre on the 16th alongside Delorentos, Video Blue & TAYNE (RSVP here).
