Year of the Dog: Pillow Queens release brand new video for their track ‘Favourite’

Dublin quartet Pillow Queens have released a brand new video for their song ‘Favourite’. Directed by the ever excellent Bob Gallagher (see his previous work with Girl Band and Enter Shikari) and produced by band member Sarah Corcoran, the video is set at an unconventional dog show and features plenty of bathroom dealings (heh) and brown envelopes changing hands. It’s a hoot to watch and kind of reminds me of the King of the Sheep episode of Father Ted. 

According to the band the main influences were old episodes of Antiques Roadshow, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the general look of the 80’s – specifically prom portraits. Many of the dogs featured in the video are friends of Cara Rescue Dogs, so check them out too! They do great work.

The track itself is a super catchy slice of alt-rock goodness that’s been stuck in my head receiving multiple daily listens since it was released on Soundcloud earlier this month. It comes in advance of Pillow Queens new EP State of the State which will be released on March 16th through Bristol based indie label Specialist Subject.

Pillow Queens will be embarking on a UK/Ireland tour to coincide with the release, finishing up with a headline show in Dublin’s Workmans Club on April 21st. Tickets for the show are on sale now price €15.
