Track Of The Day: She Drew The Gun – ‘Trouble Every Day’

Fresh from wowing crowds at a number of festival appearances this summer, including Glastonbury, Latitude, Bluedot, and blowing our minds earlier this year at the inaugural Cro Cro Land, Wirral band She Drew Gun have now shared a brand new track.

A reinterpretation of Frank Zappa’s original, ‘Trouble Every Day’ is propelled by a raw emotion and impassioned grit, as Louisa Roach’s smooth, distinctive vocals blast out the all-too-poignant, poetic lyricism. With a seething energy and politically-driven tension that builds with each note, it’s a sincere, empowering anthem for our troubled times. Of her current, pertinent, take on the original, Louisa explains:

I heard ‘Trouble Every Day’ and thought it would make a great cover, Frank Zappa wrote it based on the TV coverage of the Watts riots in LA back in the ’60s, so I rewrote some of the lyrics to reflect what I’ve seen reported on the TV in more recent times, from English riots to the Extinction Rebellion protests. It takes a look at the issues that are facing us at the moment – from the rise of the far right, to the threat of climate change and the role the global media corporations play in supporting neoliberal ideology.”

 

The new single accompanies the Trouble Every Day October tour which is the Wirral band’s biggest UK tour yet, and includes support slots from some of our favourite bands (Peaness, Dream Nails, Bugeye and The Menstrual Cramps)! Full dates and details here.
