Pillow Queens drops new single “Like a Lesson”

Author Hernan Osuna - 7.3.2024

Irish rockers Pillow Queens have unveiled their latest track “Like a Lesson” with an accompanying music video. Watch the clip below.

The Dublin-based outfit will release its new album “Name Your Sorrow” on April 19 via Royal Mountain Records.

The notion of finding safety and comfort in the presence of love of limerence is emphasized, contrasting with the paralyzing fear of making mistakes or ruining your life or someone else’s,” the band said in a statement about the new song. “It delves into the feeling of being a lesson for someone, a side character in someone else’s story.

Sonically, we were influenced by a range of artists from Blur and REM to Seminsonic, New Radicals, and Squeeze,” they added. “It began as a song we felt had a strong country music influence and morphed into something that referenced a wide range of our musical tastes. It’s the 90s soft rock song on the album.”

This June, the band will be performing live across the UK, and play a support set for Snow Patrol in Limerick, Ireland on July 12. The Limerick date will act as a warm-up for their biggest show to date on July 13 at Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens.
