Louisa Roach, the Merseyside psych-pop singer who performs under the name She Drew The Gun, has released her latest single, the dynamic and energetic ‘Cut Me Down’.
The song is the first taste of the band’s upcoming third studio album Behave Myself, which will be released early in the autumn months.
“Resisterhood continued,” Roach explained about the song’s genesis. “Inspired by the Las Tesis protests in Chile which brought a new level to the idea of a protest song, where hundreds of thousands of women took to the streets and sang ‘The Rapist is You’. The police, the government, the judges, the system was not designed to look after womens’ rights and it still does not, so I will have to fight ‘Deeper, faster, harder, cheaper, stronger, further smarter’ just to get even with you.”
Roach’s profile as She Drew The Gun grew exponentially when she won Glastonbury’s Emerging Artists competition in 2016, performing at the festival that same year. Since then, Roach has recruited a band and released two studio album’s proper, 2016’s Memories of Another Future and 2018’s Revolution of Mind. Most of the material from the group is punk-adjacent alt rock with a distinctly political and feminist mindset. Really it serves two purposes: if you want to crank it up and mindlessly rock out, you’ll be well served. If you want to slow down and appreciate some rock solid songwriting and well performed material, they hold up in that regard too.
Listen to the audio for ‘Cut Me Down’ here. Behave Myself is set for a September 24 release.
