Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra

Indie // Dublin, Dublin // She

Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra consists of singer songwriter Sarah Deegan, guitarist Sarah Michelle, bassist Julie Hough and drummer Danni Nolan. The group came together after meeting through the gig circuit of Dublin's underground music scene. Influenced by the likes of Cocteau Twins and Lush, Deegan's quick-witted and intimate songwriting strikes a balance between irony and sincerity.

Released in 2021, their anti-valentines single "I Didn't Love You when I said I did and I don't now" received widespread radio and press support in Ireland, the UK and the US.  The track was playlisted on KEXP, BBC NI, Newstalk, 8Radio and RTE 2fm, with 2fm Alternative presenter Dan Hegarty naming it his favourite Irish release of 2021.

PCRO have recently supported Pillow Queens, The Backseat Lovers, Silverbacks and M(h)aol. The band showcased at The Grand Social for Ireland Music Week 2022. They are also on the bill for this year's St. Patrick's Festival at Collin's Barracks, a night curated by Pillow Queens. The band have just completed their debut album which is due for release later this year or early next. 

“a morose, yet barbed indie banger exploring young adulthood through a distinctly Irish lens.” - Clare Martin, Paste Magazine

"[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 their new single ‘Empty Envelope’, the band have crafted another slow-burning, moving ode to emotional resilience" - Kate Crudgington, Get In Her Ears

"Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra have steadily built a strong standing in Dublin’s underground scene. Melding ‘90s rock and grunge motifs, the trio often recall Pillow Queens in their arrangements and there’s no doubt they will be embraced with a similar outpour of warmth from audiences both home and away." - Zara Hedderman, Totally Dublin
