The very eagerly awaited In Waiting will be with us on September 25
Much-vaunted Dubliners Pillow Queens have premiered the promo for 'Handsome Wife', their new single which will be available on all platforms on Friday June 12.
"The video was made in isolation with the help of family, friends and strangers," the band say. "It is a love letter to touch and all the ways we miss the closeness of others right now."
As for the tune accompanying the Kate Dolan-directed visuals, they add: "'Handsome Wife' begins with a glimpse into an emotional homecoming, one that intensifies and romanticises the seemingly insignificant. Throughout, the mundane but tender moments are held up and deified, paying reverence to the ease in which a love can thrive outside the realms of tradition. The song continuously references structures and rituals that were once out of reach, but are now within our grasp. In spite of this 'Handsome Wife' affirms that they pale in comparison to the communities we’ve built ourselves.”
It's another compelling calling card for their debut album, In Waiting, which follows on September 25 via-Pillow Queens Records and will we strongly suspect be something of a landmark. Pre-order from https://pillowqueens.com/shop
