Taken from her debut album, Dreams From The Factory Floor, the songs have seen Louise gain patronage from the likes of protest punk stalwart, Billy Bragg.
But, insists Distras, “I don’t view myself as a protest singer, I view myself as a young woman passing on the message for the next generation.”
Hailing from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, last year Louise swapped songs with Bragg at Glastonbury, and supported both New Model Army and UK Subs. She also played an extensive tour in Canada with Mahones.
You can watch the brand new video for “Love Me The Way I Am” below.
The single is available now via Street Revolution Records in CD, download and limited edition vinyl formats, and features an alternative version of “Love Me The Way I Am.”
