Momentum: She Makes War
She Makes War is the solo project of Bristol based multi-instrumentalist producer and visual artist Laura Kidd. Blending urgent indie rock with melancholy torch songs, SMW’s fourth album “Brace For Impact” is released on 5th October 2018.
Embarking upon a voyage of self-discovery, her songs stay close to hand-crafted journals packed with stickers and photographs, sparks of lyrical imagination and inspirational notes, simultaneously slaying with killer riffs. Each page and astutely scavenged field sound recording captures the plot twists of She Makes War’s sonic trajectory to date.
Youthful photographic portraits and 3D collages of childhood items adorn the artwork for her music, reflecting the innocence of youth’s unbroken heart and her contrasting life as an adventurous musician. “After finding myself in a happy relationship after a long period of sadness, this record enabled me to ruminate and find ways of creating beauty where there was once pain. I’m the strongest I’ve ever been because of all I’ve been through,” she says.
She Makes War is delighted to have been awarded Momentum funding for her UK album launch tour.
