Pillow Queens have announced a brand new album.
Titled ‘Leave The Light On’, their second full-length is set for release on 1st April, and is preceded by a new track, ‘Be By Your Side’.
“This song is about the mechanisms that are used to hide your vulnerabilities and carry on,” explains singer / bassist Pamela Connolly. “But also, the feeling of being about to burst and how cathartic it could be to allow yourself to let your emotions out and feel the world around you. This was one of the first songs we finished on the album as it was the quickest to become fully realized by all of us.”
You can check out ‘Be By Your Side’ below.
