Their latest release is the video for 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-pieces second album, the James Skelly (The Coral) produced, Revolution Of Mind, which also includes lead single Resister.
Louisa Roach isn't a protest singer. The ambitious, melodic psych pop this Merseyside artist makes under the moniker She Drew The Gun is too abstract for that label, more dreamy than didactic.
"I've always felt drawn to music that says something," explains Roach, "music that goes beyond simple love songs. As a songwriter, you've got the whole spectrum of human experience to draw from; half of that is the bigger picture stuff."
Listen to Revolution of Mind, with its melodic choruses and stream-of-consciousness style verses delivered in Roach's cool, Scouse-inflected vocals, and it's clear where She Drew The Gun hail from – spiritually and geographically.
"I love 60s music and Psychedelia, I've also been inspired by Liverpool bands like The Coral, The La"s and The Lightning Seeds. I think we're somewhere along that continuum."
Roach – born, raised and currently residing on the Wirral – brings a queer feminist energy to this rather male-dominated lineage.
Domestic life was never going to be enough for this would-be rebel bard, and eventually Roach returned to academia, moving to Liverpool to study Psychology as a mature student.
It was during this period that she picked up the guitar again, studying by day and strumming by night, in part-time bands or moonlighting at open mic nights:
"I felt really free after the move. I met my now-girlfriend [Roach's first, serious, same-sex relationship] about a year later; some of the first songs I wrote were about her."
With new love came a new confidence. Auspiciously, the handful of tracks she'd sent to the BBC were singled out by DJ David Monks, who immediately booked Roach for a live session.
It was that session that put She Drew The Gun on James Skelly's radar.
Impressed with Roach's brand of proudly regional upstart pop, The Coral man promptly signed her to his Skeleton Key
label, helping to release her debut.
