She Drew The Gun have unveiled the video for their 6Music A-Listed current single 'Something For The Pain'. The stylish black & white video was produced and directed by Johnny Gregory and shot in Liverpool.
"The song is about a conversation with a refugee set in the future," says Louisa Roach, She Drew The Gun's frontwoman, guitarist and songwriter. "At the 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, one that treats everybody as citizens giving them their basic needs. In the video we played with the idea of that future exchange using 'Jenny Holzer' style text art to create a narrative and dancers to represent the conversation.
'Something For The Pain' is the second single to be taken from the Wirral four-piece's acclaimed second album 'Revolution Of Mind', a BBC 6Music Album Of The Year, which also includes lead single 'Resister'. Last week, She Drew The Gun were John Kennedy's Artist In Residence on his X-Posure show on Radio X, and they will be performing live on Soccer AM on Sky Sports 1 on Saturday 22nd December at Xam.
