Like the great storytellers and social observers before her – from Bob Dylan through to the Sex Pistols, it is little surprise that Louise Distras is already garnering comparisons to charged songstresses Brody Dalle and Courtney Love, but this British indie songstress is already a woman in a league of her own. Tipped as one of Kerrang magazines ‘Stars of 2017‘, Distras channels her anger, hopes and fears into anthems of love and fury for yet another let down generation with her new single ‘Outside of You’. In just three short years Louise Distras has toured across the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA. She’s shared stages with Mick Jones (The Clash), Billy Bragg, Buzzcocks, Stiff Little Fingers, The King Blues, The Damned and played at Glastonbury Festival, Camden Rocks, Slam Dunk Festival, Frank Turner’s Lost Evenings, Bearded Theory, Rebellion Festival and Punk Rock Bowling. Distras has been praised by The Guardian, Vive Le Rock, BBC Radio 1, Radio X, KROQ and Kerrang! who said Louise Distras is “the most exciting voice in UK punk-rock right now!”
“The one woman sound of revolution!” – Kerrang!
“Putting punk and protest back into the mainstream” – The Guardian
“The female Frank Carter, the Brody Dalle of the North of England; She’s original, humble and articulate, with a voice that can give you goosebumps and a kick in the c**t at one fell swoop. Distras is the TITS!” – Trash Magazine
