Irish quartet Pillow Queens illustrates the value of small, insignificant moments that make life worth it in their new single “Handsome Wife.” The video, directed by Kate Dolan, showcases all those small and underappreciated instances in life while also showcasing each of the bandmember’s performance chemistry. Watch below:

On their new single, the band explained: “‘Handsome Wife’ begins with a glimpse into an emotional homecoming, one that intensifies and romanticizes the seemingly insignificant. Throughout, the mundane but tender moments are held up and deified, paying reverence to the ease in which a love can thrive outside the realms of tradition. The song continuously references structures and rituals that were once out of reach, but are now within our grasp. In spite of this Handsome Wife affirms that they pale in comparison to the communities we’ve built ourselves.”

“Handsome Wife” is from the quartet’s upcoming debut record In Waiting, which will be out on September 25th.
