28th February | Fleece

If there’s one theme to expect of She Drew The Gun’s performance at The Fleece on the 28th February, it’s liberation.

Their latest record, Revolution Of Mind, released back in October 2018, explores liberation under many guises; arming yourself for freedom with knowledge, questioning your present situation and how it’s affected by the systems we live in and resisting the status quo to find empowerment and enlightenment. It’s a theme that Wirral-born frontwoman, guitarist and songwriter Louisa Roach frames in her own way while also taking inspiration from the likes of Manchester-born poet Toria Garbutt, underground folk artist, Malvina Reynolds and the voices of Courtney Barnett and Kate Tempest.

Underpinned by scuzzy, reverberating guitars and smashing drums, Roach’s speak-sing vocals take control of twisted and darkly ornate psych-pop that tells tales of the grafters, the marginalised, and those struggling to make ends meet under an oppressive Conservative government. She performs her poetry between splashes of psychedelic guitar and sometimes bluesy melodies, whether it be in the disarming and dastardly ‘Resister’ or the punk-rich ‘Paradise’ and ‘Dopamine’.

Get yourself down to The Fleece on Thursday night to see She Drew The Gun, and don’t forget to bring your very best ‘Fuck The Tories’ attitude.
