2016 was a breakthrough year for She Drew The Gun, who won Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent competition. Festival co-organiser Emily Eavis said “they stood out in the most brilliant way – spiked indie with biting lyrics. Intense and great.” She Drew The Gun’s subsequent appearance on the John Peel Stage drew the biggest morning crowd of the weekend.
Louisa Roach began by performing solo in 2013, gradually building the band around her. Her career began to take off after a mutual friend introduced her to James Skelly, who signed her to his Skeleton Key label in 2015. Working from the bare bones of her songs – poetic narrative lyrics set to haunting riffs and melodies – they built up the tracks, developing an electronic element into Roach’s sound. The result is a dark but dreamlike collection of stories which have seen She Drew The Gun win fans all over the country, including DJs at Beats1 (Zane Lowe), Radio 1 (Huw Stevens) along with Radio X and BBC 6 Music who have both playlisted their last three singles.
After spending last summer performing at festivals across the UK, She Drew The Gun were invited to perform at Zandari Festa in Seoul, South Korea, as part of the Liverpool Sound City Takeover, and finished the year on a high, supporting The Coral on their UK tour.
She Drew The Gun are Louisa Roach (vocals, lead guitar), Jack Turner (bass), Siân Monaghan (drums) and Jenni Kickhefer (keys).
