Louise Distras

Louise Distras - New World In Our Heart

Louise Distras - Solidarity (Little Steven Cover)


Louise Distras is this week’s special guest in The Moonshine Sessions.... Always bringing the powerful polemics to the centre stage, she performs ‘New World In Our Heart’ plus her own version of ‘Solidarity’ by Little Steven.

A rallying cry for radical change, Louise Distras channels her experiences of homeless in her youth and her anger at inequality into rabble rousing folk rock.

Distras has caught the eye of the critics with Kerrang! calling her “The most exciting voice in UK punk right now", a sentiment seconded by the esteemed veteran John Robb whose coverage on her in his Louder Than War page described her music as "Big electric punk anthems for yet another let down generation, and a searing lyrical clarity from the gutter looking at the stars”.
