ACCLAIMED ALBUM ‘REVOLUTION OF MIND’ OUT NOW A BBC 6MUSIC ALBUM OF THE YEAR “A record of steely conviction in uncertain times” **** – Q “it’s like an angry, Scouse-inflected PJ Harvey. Ie: bloody brilliant” – Sunday Telegraph Louisa Roach isn’t a protest singer. The ambitious, melodic psych pop this Merseyside artist makes under the moniker She Drew The Gun is too abstract for that label, more dreamy than didactic. But it’s fair to say this rising star – winner of Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent contest in 2016 – works adjacent to that tradition, taking inspiration from the likes of underground folk legend Malvina Reynolds, and contemporary poets such as Kate Tempest and Manchester’s Toria Garbutt. “I’ve always felt drawn to music that says something,” explains Roach, “music that goes beyond simple love songs. As a songwriter, you’ve got the whole spectrum of human experience to draw from; half of that is the bigger picture stuff.”
