Watch: Irish Band Pillow Queens On The Late Late Show With James Corden

For a year when normalcy was ripped from us, 2020 was a surprisingly brilliant year for Irish music.

Well, it's no surprise that the music was brilliant, rather that it came out in the first place.

From hip-hop to punk to indie, every facet of the Irish music scene has showcased the best of itself in 2020.

One band that epitomise that are Dublin outfit Pillow Queens, whose debut album In Waiting came out this year to stellar reviews.

Alongside placement near the summit of every 'Best Irish Album of 2020' list and a nomination for the Choice Music Prize, Pillow Queens have also been making waves outside of the island.

That was crystallised last night with an interview and performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, their first US television performance.

Band members Pamela Connolly and Sarah Corcoran chopped it up with Corden before their performance, detailing how they've found the response to the album.

They also shared a story of swimming in a baltic Atlantic Ocean whilst recording the album in Donegal, losing a pair of swimming togs but finding the catalyst to complete the album.

Also, there's a hint of a Shelbourne pin badge. Firstly, the Tolka Park club are showcased on Jools Holland by For Those I Love, now US telly is privy to the Reds. We anticipate that Stuey Byrne will be on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert sooner rather than later.

They then got right into the performance of their song 'Liffey'.
