She Drew The Gun

Political, personal, and powerful: She Drew The Gun bring their hook-laden psych pop and razor sharp radical commentary to Stockton this month in support of vibrant new album ‘Behave Myself’.

The project of Merseyside’s Louisa Roach, who proudly describes herself as a working class, socialist, feminist, the tracks bounce between retro tinged synths, pure rock guitar, and groovy percussion to conjure up socially charged alt pop perfection. The band storm through eternally current topics, tackling sickening Tory corruption, environmental destruction, and capitalist exploitation, alongside a sweet smattering of queer love songs, with an enticing combination of drawled spoken word and catchy choruses. Lead single ‘Cut Me Down’ ignites grungey bass with driving drums and 80’s synths, with the lyrics inspired by the bravery of women’s rights protests in Chile - and it demands to be amped up loud. Catch She Drew The Gun at The Georgian Theatre for a night of animating tunes worthy of soundtracking a revolution.

The Georgian Theatre, Stockton-on-tees, 25th February, 8pm, £10. georgiantheatre.co.uk
