She Drew The Gun returns with new single 'Howl'

Following the rousing response to her much-loved studio album 'Behave Myself' in 2021, She Drew The Gun now makes her eagerly-awaited return to deliver a brand new single.

The new track 'Howl' marks her first piece of new material in three years, and was produced by Ash Workman (Christine & the Queens, Metronomy).

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “The definition of Howl is to utter a loud profound mournful cry and howling has been used across cultures and time periods in a variety of rituals and practices as a way to connect with others and give rise to primal energy, as well as connect with the spiritual world, honour ancestors, invoke protection, and release emotions.

“To me my howl is the thing I do to release emotions and connect, the howl as art form, song, poem, it makes the now, the present moment alive when I share that with those present with me. It’s also about the staggering amount of things that led to ones existence, how part of me, the things that make up my body were there at the beginning of time, the atoms, the elements of our bodies were formed in the hearts of long dead stars over billions of years. Then there’s what all of our ancestors lived through, the magic of consciousness, survival, all of the dangers that wired us the way we are, spirituality, respect for the earth, and I see the way life is organised through this historical understanding, how we got to this point, civilisations, feudalism, colonialism, patriarchal power, the witch hunts and how they were instrumental in the transition to capitalism, the crushing of indigenous traditions and knowledge, all of these histories and institutions shape who I am today, and I mourn for the suffering caused in the pursuit of power, but they can’t touch my soul and I have my howl to connect, release and invoke spiritual energy, most potently in the ritual of live performance.”
