She Drew The Gun

She Drew The Gun make hypnotic, spiked indie music built around the biting lyrics of singer-guitarist Louisa Roach. Under the moniker She Drew The Gun, the Wirral native started playing solo gigs with a handful of songs in 2014. Meeting James Skelly of The Coral in 2015, Louisa began recording with Skelly at Skeleton Key Records and recruiting band members along the way. The result was a dark but dreamlike collection of stories from the songwriter’s life and imagination caught in a bubble of psych-tinged pop.

After touring Europe in 2015, Louisa emerged in 2016 with a fully formed band that saw off 5,000 competitors to win Glastonbury's emerging talent contest. Adding new songs and reissuing their debut album, the band continued to tour throughout 2017, performing at SXSW and across a string of UK festivals including main stage performances at Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival.

This year saw the release of the band’s second full-length record, Revolution of the Mind. With its melodic choruses and stream-of-consciousness style verses delivered in Roach’s cool, Scouse-inflected vocals, it’s clear where She Drew The Gun hail. Spiritually and geographically, the record takes inspiration from other Liverpool bands like The Coral, The La’s and The Lightning Seeds, but the album also displays Louisa’s love of 60s Psychedelia, born out in her unique reading of Frank Zappa’s Trouble Every Day - the single currently play-listed on BBC 6 Music.

Louisa and her band are somewhere along that continuum - and they continue to win over fans too, with their meticulously layered songs. Having just completed a headline UK tour and a string of sold out dates, the band are riding high as 2019 comes to a close.

She Drew The Gun will play the main stage in the TT Fan Park on Saturday 30th May as part of the brand new TT Party in the Park. The event is free to attend.
