‘Something For The Pain’ is the brilliant new single from She Drew The Gun, available to stream and download now and impacting at radio on December 21st. The track is the second single to be taken from the Wirral four-piece’s acclaimed second album 'Revolution Of Mind' and follows the 6Music A-Listed lead single ‘Resister’.
“This is a is utopian sci-fi protest song inspired by an old Celtic saying I found in a little book of poems, ’May you always have walls for the wind, a roof for the rain,’” says Louisa Roach, She Drew The Gun’s front-woman, guitarist and songwriter. “The story of a conversation with a woman refugee set in the future, at a point where the refugee crisis has become so big, and automation so ubiquitous, that what is left of the first world finally make the decision to become a people rather than profit-based society. A society that treats everybody as citizens giving them their basic needs.”
Produced by The Coral’s James Skelly at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios. ‘Revolution Of Mind’ is the follow-up to She Drew The Gun’s2016 debut ‘Memories Of Another Future’, which contained the BBC 6Music playlisted singles ‘Poem’, ‘Pit Pony’, ‘Since You Were Not Mine’ and ‘No Hole In My Head’. The band recently joined 6Music’s Steve Lamacq for a live session, listen again here.
Roach draws musical inspiration from the likes of underground folk legend Malvina Reynolds, Manchester poet Toria Garbutt, and contemporary voices like Kate Tempest, Nadine Shah and Courtney Barnett.
Having recently completed a UK tour supporting The Coral, She Drew The Gun will hit the road in early 2019 for an extensive headline tour, which includes London’s Garage on March 7th.
