On Friday 25th February, The Georgian Theatre in Stockton welcomes the dreamy etherealism of Wirral-based psych pop band, She Drew The Gun.

Brooding and romantic in equal measure, She Drew The Gun have been on the rise for several years. The outspoken brainchild of Louisa Roach, the band released their debut record, produced by The Coral’s James Skelly, after a BBC 6Music Session in 2016. Since then, they’ve created waves through winning Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent competition, supporting The Coral on their 2018 UK tour and performing at SXSW and a string of UK festivals.

Their third album, Behave Myself, was released in October last year. Still retaining the band’s idiosyncratic space-age melodies, the album introduced a previously-unheard punk-infused electronica. Roach’s lyrics are angsty and refreshingly politically astute, with synth-heavy tracks like Next On The List and Class War – How Much offering a candid social commentary that is just as facetious as it is forthright.

Combining the personal and the political, She Drew The Gun possess a rare ability to combine vulnerable and rebellious song-writing with a contagious upbeat optimism, making this gig one not to be missed.

She Drew The Gun play The Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Friday 25th February.
