A Girl And A Gun is 18 year old Alabama resident Sophie B who claims to be “taking over the world with her hotness”. That’s as maybe, but she’s got some pretty awesome tunes under her belt as well. She’s a potential thorn in the side for the current trend for female electro-pop artists, given her apparent attitude that there’s really no need to gently excite your listeners with retro synth sounds when you can ramp up the gain and beat them around the head with more immediate effect. Her debut album was released last summer by Jet Fighter Records, but a better starting point is a newer track, ‘Send More Cops’, which you can find streaming on her MySpace profile.
