POST COAL PROM QUEEN
Lily and Gordon have developed a unique sound for PCPQ by blending organic textures, retrofuturistic synths, and mechanical beats with ambitious pop sensibilities - fused together with Lily's distinct vocals. Their songs have been heard on BBC Radio 1, 6Music, and BBC Radio Scotland, charted on Amazing Radio, been featured on the major 'Hot New Bands' Spotify playlist, and have garnered international acclaim. They take influences from the likes of Gorillaz, Portishead and Boards of Canada and combine them with their own distinct style to create new and exciting pop soundscapes.
In 2021 the duo were commissioned by the Hidden Door festival to curate a fortnight of content. This led to the UTOPIA PROJECT which featured interviews between PCPQ and Ian Rankin, Amna Saleem, Etienne Kubwabo and Laura Lam, and a live show recorded at the Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh. In late 2021 PCPQ's music will be used in the upcoming film 'Living Proof' - a collaboration between the National Libraries of Scotland and Film Hub Scotland. In 2022 the band plans to reschedule their Covid-cancelled live shows in London, Paris, Tokyo, Glasgow and Edinburgh and to release their debut album.
“throbbing, frantic (in a good way) and utterly infectious...frankly, they've never sounded better” – The Skinny
“They crystallize a vivid miniature world as delicate as a snowglobe” - SNACK
“It practically scorches into being on the back of dark industrial synths like a bomber raid, pulls back the curtain on some thrumming melodicism, and entrusts Lily to siren-song you towards a distant light” - Backseat Mafia
