She Drew the Gun share video and details of new album
Just added to the BBC 6 Music playlist, and announced as one of the eight finalists for the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition we're proud to present the video of a track from She Drew The Gun's new album, due for release on 22 April via Skeleton Key Records.
We think the track 'Poetry' perfectly encapsulates She Drew The Gun's pointed and emotionally true social commentary. You can check for yourself by watching below, followed by details of their new album and UK tour.
The debut draws lyrical inspiration from Louisa Roach’s (aka She Drew The Gun) own real life experiences. Whilst the chugged guitars and a laid back percussive tempo glide effortlessly through a chorus of blues tinged understated yet soulful sublime offerings. Self-scrutiny and drunken reflection are just a few of threads in the rich tapestry and myriad of intertwining themes found within She Drew The Gun’s music. That isn’t afraid to explore or veer outside the norm with a Sci-Fi protest song and dreamy love song straight out of a Kurt Vonnegut novel amongst the gems on the album.
The album was recorded at Parr Street studios, Liverpool during 2015 under the watchful eye of James Skelly of The Coral on production duties.
Louisa’s underground roots lie in performing at open mic events and various acoustic gigs, Honing her skills along the way. But word spread quickly and after meeting percussionist Sian Monaghan and the added dimension of texture and sound to her intimate live performances. She was invited in to her local radio station for a live session. She soon came to the attention of Steve Lamacq who championed an early release that was up on soundcloud. That led to an invitation to perform a BBC introducing live session at Maida Vale in 2015. Gaining further national recognition and acclaim with several further underground releases. The release of her debut album will introduce her to a wider audience and is sure to further enhance her growing reputation as one of the best emerging artistes of 2016.
