Pillow Queens Release New Song ‘Heavy Pour’

    Ahead of the release of their new album Name Your Sorrow on Friday, Pillow Queens have offered up one more single called ‘Heavy Pour’. It follows ‘Suffer’, ‘Gone’, and ‘Like a Lesson’. Check out director Kate Dolan’s video for it below.

    “It feels like a bit of a bizarre journey or a fever dream,” lead guitarist and vocalist Cathy McGuinness shared in a statement. “The guitar becomes more palatable in the middle eight, totally contradicting the previous section of discordant chaos. It then falls into a glorious half time with ‘oohs’ to support the instruments, giving a feeling of clarity and resolve before snapping back to the chorus.”

    Lead vocalist, guitarist, and bassist Pamela Connelly added: “A lot of the lines in this song could convey the typical sweetness of a love song, but it has brief moments of outside perspectives that cast doubt over the conviction represented. The song tries to show the ‘heavy pour’ as a compulsion that while having moments of joy, ultimately heightens personal insecurities.”
