Heartfelt and sincere

Why I gave the above rating: 

This latest release from Dublin punk rock quartet Pillow Queens follows several other single releases this year, including 'HowDoILook' and EPs Calm Girls and State of the State. 'Brothers' is a dedication to the men in the lives of the band, following the death of a friend, and is a sombre track in comparison to most of their other work which is often heavier in instrumentation, distortion and sound. It begins with a slow and steady drum beat and a gliding hook on guitar before the opening words 'So sorry since we hit eighteen, I've been really coming up short'. The track builds in sound as the chorus comes in ('I love my brothers and my brothers love me. Hold up your hands, shoulder the weak'), but overall remains slow and gentle. The music and lyrics are sincere and the song is a welcome contrast to the Pillow Queens you may know from seeing them perform live, while still remaining true to their style and ethos.
