She Drew The Gun

Trouble Every Day EP

    Fresh from a series of triumphant festival appearances this summer, including performances at Glastonbury, Latitude, Bluedot and Deer Shed, She Drew The Gun announce brand new single ‘Trouble Every Day’ released on Skeleton Key Records on 29th August 2019.

    A reinterpretation of Frank Zappa’s original, She Drew The Gun frontwoman Louisa Roach has updated the lyrics to reflect our troubled times. Louisa comments –

    I heard Trouble Every Day and thought it would make a great cover, Frank Zappa wrote it based on the TV coverage of the Watts riots in LA back in the 60’s, so I rewrote some of the lyrics to reflect what I’ve seen reported on the TV in more recent times, from English riots to the Extinction Rebellion protests. It takes a look at the issues that are facing us at the moment from the rise of the far right to the threat of climate change and the role the global media corporations play in supporting neoliberal ideology.

    The revisions to the lyrics received the full blessing of the Zappa estate who were keen to hear the song adapted to suit contemporary times.

    The Fernweh

    Sunsighs (Indie Exclusive)

      2 Track single including Sunrise a cover of a song by The Who and a new version of New Brighton Sigh.

      Championed and playlisted by BBC 6 Music. Recorded in seclusion on the North Yorkshire coast and transporting listeners on musical journey. Three friends, Jamie Backhouse (guitars), Ned Crowther (vocals and guitar) and Oz Murphy (keys/saxophone) gathered to make the album they always knew they could make, based on a pure and profound love for a golden era for British and US folk rock. Wringing every last drop of their combined experience into a cup that overflows with melody, song craft and deeply evocative imagery of a quintessentially British era of ‘mainstream psychedelia’, they are joined by Maja Agnevik (vocals/flute) and Phil Murphy (drummer). Melodies and stories inspired by distinctly British, coal-fired version of 60s/70s psychedelia. Layered vocal harmonies, gentle, steam-train percussion and strokes of piano, acoustic guitars and subtle string arrangements are a feature of this sublime and compelling debut. A return journey into Britain’s explosively creative, post-war period.

      She Drew The Gun

      Memories Of Another Future - Expanded Edition

        This expanded version of the debut album from She Drew The Gun contains three new tracks including "No Hole In My Head", a cover of the Malvina Reynolds protest song.

        ‘Memories Of The Future’ draws lyrical inspiration from Louisa Roach (aka She Drew The Gun)’s own real life experiences whilst the chugged guitars and a laid back percussive tempo glide effortlessly through a chorus of glacial, blues-tinged, soulful, sublime offerings. 

        Self-scrutiny and drunken reflection are just a few of the threads and myriad intertwining themes within ‘Memories Of The Future’s rich tapestry.
