Liverpudlian outfit She Drew The Gun brought their unique punk-influenced psych-pop to Mono Bar in Glasgow, the third date on their completely sold out UK tour in support of their masterfully assertive second album, ‘Revolution of the Mind’
Support came from Warrington band Echo & The Man, whose music drew influence from Elton John to American punks Parquet Courts. Their short support slot was unabashed and tightly performed, riling up the eager crowd. Taking to the stage shortly after, She Drew the Gun opened with militaristic ‘Resister’. The lyrics projected onto the wall behind vocalist Louisa Roach sang them with the venom necessary for a band not afraid to send a message out with their art.
After that, they played fan favourite ‘Something for the Pain’, a funky politically charged song played with ferocious energy, with was reciprocated by the audience in the front row, to see so many hands in the air and being so enthusiastic shows an act that has gained a firmly dedicated fanbase since their inception in 2013.
The band flawlessly melded a setlist together of tracks from both their albums. From 2016’s ‘Memories of Another Future’, they played tracks like ‘Poem’ and ‘Since You Were Not Mine’ with as much style as they played new songs, showing no fatigue in their older songs and displaying the growth of the music between their first and last releases.
For a band only three nights into a tour, their performances were incredibly tight, and the enthusiasm was present from all the members. The audience at Mono certainly weren’t let down by the performance and as their tour continues, ‘She Drew the Gun’ will only continue to prove themselves as one of the most essential live acts coming from the UK.
