She Makes War is about to release her third album – the Pledge Music-funded Direction Of Travel. In anticipation of that, she’s just shared a brand new video for the album’s first release, Drown Me Out (above).
AKA Laura Kidd from Bristol, She Makes War writes and produces her own music (as well as playing most of the instruments), and has been compared to Sleater Kinney, PJ Harvey and Cat Power (amongst many others). She’s supported Nadine Shah, and was described by Lauren Laverne as being reminiscent of of “Medúlla-era Bjork”.
She Makes War plays Bristol’s Thekla on the 26th March, and will also be performing at Are You Listening? and Handmade festivals in April.
