Roach – born, raised and currently residing on the Wirral – brings a queer feminist energy to this rather male-dominated lineage. She was an ‘80s kid, raised by a hard-working single-parent mother and loving nan in nearby Birkenhead. As a kid, Roach was tomboyish, a footie fan with a competitive streak. She started playing guitar at 13 and was soon performing Oasis covers at friends’ parties. Music was a hobby at that point, a bedroom passion that fell by the wayside as teenage life and, a little later, motherhood took over [Roach has a 12 year-old son].

 

Domestic life was never going to be enough for this would-be rebel bard, and eventually Roach returned to academia, moving to Liverpool to study Psychology as a mature student. It was during this period that she picked up the guitar again, studying by day and strumming by night, in part-time bands or moonlighting at open mic nights. “I felt really free after the move. I met my now-girlfriend [Roach’s first, serious, same-sex relationship] about a year later; some of the first songs I wrote were about her.”

 

With new love came a new confidence. Auspiciously, the handful of tracks she’d sent to the BBC were singled out by DJ David Monks, who immediately booked Roach for a live session. It was that session that put She Drew The Gun on James Skelly’s radar. Impressed with Roach’s brand of proudly regional upstart pop, The Coral man promptly signed her to his Skeleton Key label, helping to release her debut.

    Having last week completed a sold-out UK tour, She Drew The Gun have today announced their ‘Trouble Everyday’ tour for October & November. The Wirral band’s biggest UK tour yet will include London’s Electric Ballroom on October 17th.
     
    She Drew The Gun will be performing at the BBC 6Music Festival in Liverpool on March 29th (at Eventim Olympia with Anna Calvi), and they have been confirmed for Latitude, Tramlines, Bluedot, Truck, Farmfest and Deer Shed festivals.
     
    Led by frontwoman and songwriter Louisa Roach, She Drew The Gun recently released new single 'Paradise', available digitally now and impacting at radio on 26th April. ‘Paradise’ is the third single to be taken from sophomore album 'Revolution Of Mind' following the BBC 6Music A-Listed tracks ‘Resister’ and ‘Something For The Pain’. Produced by The Coral’s James Skelly at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios. The album was chosen as a 6Music Recommends Album Of The Year 2018 alongside albums from IDLES, Kamasi Washington, and Arctic Monkeys among others.
     
    “Its like a bad advert for capitalism, as if it was a product in some grotesque 1950’s ad,” says Roach of ‘Paradise’. “The free market is so wonderful isn't it? It’s supposed to make everything great when really it’s just a paradise for the rich and privileged, but there’s trouble on the breeze because it’s completely unsustainable.
