Pillow Queens – Rats
A thrillingly topical video by Dublin four-piece Pillow Queens – Cathy, Pam, Rach & Sarah – currently touring the UK. Cameos from the band members feature throughout.
Pillow Queens write:
The video for Rats takes place on the set of a radical left queer educational television programme for children.
Despite being severely underfunded and under-rehearsed the show goes on, their aim being to enlighten the youth of Ireland to the wonderful world of leftist politics.
Hosted by Snotsey-May Darcy and co-hosted by resident artist Síle O’Surelook (played by founder of Dublin’s best queer variety show GlitterHOLE; Beth Hayden, and drag extraordinaire; Daniel Power).
The content of the show and set itself is littered with references to pop culture and pays particular attention to Ireland’s current political climate with nods to ongoing struggles against the state.
