Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra

Indie // Dublin 8, Dublin // She/They

Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra consists of songwriter/guitarist Sarah Deegan, bassist Alice Grollero and drummer Danni Nolan, who met through the gig circuit of Dublin City's underground music scene. Influenced by indie rock heroines such as Mitski, Courtney Barnett and Angel Olsen, Deegan’s quick-witted and intimate songwriting strikes a balance between irony and sincerity.

Their most recent single "I Didn't Love You When I Said I Did and I Don't Now" received widespread support across Ireland and the US being featured on Newstalk, BBC radio Ulster, KEXP, 8 Radio, Flirt FM, Dublin City FM, Radio na Life. The single was praised by The Thin Air, Last Mixed Tape and more.

The band have been working hard in the studio recording their debut album.

Praise for PCRO:

"‘I didn’t love you when I said I did’ more than delivers on the promise of their prior two singles, as the band increasingly look to be held in the same breath with the likes of the fast-rising Pillow Queens and Maija Sofia." - The Thin Air

“Deegan’s voice has – dare I say it – a touch of Dolores O’Riordan’s intonation.” – Hot Press

"[I Didn't Love You when I Said I Did is] a song that stops you in your tracks and makes you listen" - Gemma Bradley, BBC Across The Line

“With a lyrical take on the genre, boasting a clear literary influence, her most recent single Scarlett Letter is a fantastic tune” – Nialler 9

"Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra deliver a spikey alt-rock sound with ‘I Didn’t Love You When I Said I Did and I Don’t Now’. Blasting through a haze of jangle guitar, the bristling music is pulled into focus by a powerful vocal." - The Last Mixed Tape

"Comparisons with the likes of Liz Fraser and Dolores O’Riordan are inevitable and justified with such a voice as Sarah Deegans." - 25 Years Later
