She Drew The Gun unveil politically-charged video for ‘Paradise’: “It’s a bad advert for capitalism”

"The free market is so wonderful, isn't it?"

She Drew The Gun have unveiled the politically-charged new video for new single ‘Paradise’. See it first on NME below.

Taken from their acclaimed second album ‘Revolution Of The Mind’, the track sees the band weighing up the pitfalls and imbalance that prevails within today’s capitalist society.

“Its like a bad advert for capitalism, as if it was a product in some grotesque 1950’s ad,” said She Drew The Gun frontwoman Louisa Roach. “The free market is so wonderful isn’t it?”

“It’s supposed to make everything great when really it’s just a paradise for the rich and privileged, but there’s trouble on the breeze because it’s completely unsustainable.”

Next month, She Drew The Gun will be performing at the NME Stage at Live At Leeds Festival on Saturday May 4, alongside Metronomy, Goat Girl, Confidence Man, C Duncan and Skinny Living. Visit here for tickets and more information.
