She Drew The Gun
Plus Mollusca Vita
At first glance Louisa Roach’s fuzzy psych-pop project may suggest that the Wirral born songwriter is another ‘Cosmic Scouser’ but then you’re drawn into the spirit of rebellion, songs that rally against injustice and food banks and celebrate outsiderdom.
Roach was late to music, releasing her first LP ‘Memories of the future’ after a decade of motherhood and studying at college. The second LP ‘ Revolution of Mind’, released October 2018, continued the fine work laid out on her 2016 debut. Announced in the top 10 albums of 2018 by BBC Radio 6 Music, the record was one of the runaway indie successes of the year.
To coincide with the new LP ‘Memories of the Revolution’, She Drew the Gun have also announced the ‘Music & Poetry Tour’ – a run of stripped-back performances showcasing Roach’s raw talent in its most minimalist form yet.

“Politically unafraid, musically bold and combining social protest with the most delectable interspersing of musical influences.”
Louder Than War
The self-proclaimed ‘illegitimate slug baby’ of Amy Winehouse and Bill Bailey, Mollusca is unapologetically unique. Armed with a voice powerful enough to bring any establishment to its knees (and a guitar named frog), she delivers songs about the power and abuse of love, the dystopian elite and smashing the patriarchy.
Manchester born and bred, having learned how to be human in the highlands and later on in Nottingham, she is just as feral as you may imagine and prefer.
