She Drew The Gun
Last Saturday I posted a track from Liverpudlian. Louisa Roach's band She Drew The Gun. After hearing Poem the first time I headed straight to Soundcloud to see if this track was a one off or if there were other gems to find and there were which sent me straight to the band's website to order the album, which was released at the beginning of last month according to the website, however at other places it says that it was released last April. Irrespective of when it was released I think that a lot more people need to hear about this record than I think do at present, not that featuring it hear will further that cause all that much. It has hardly been off my turntable since it arrived. It is a very strong debut album from the band. At times the album is a bit folkly, at others pretty soulful but mostly a psychy, indie pop sound but then you might expect that from a band mentored and produced by James Skelly (former frontman of the Coral) and signed to Skeleton Records. After a week and a bit of listening I can honestly say that there are no duff tracks and for me it will take something extra special to knock this off of the pedestal of find of 2017 for me.
Do yourself a favour and head over here and order it for yourself, you won't regret it I can assure you.
