An Evening with She Makes War, Crofters Rights, Bristol - 22nd December 2017

Laura is such a talent. Such a fun evening of her songs interspersed with some great witty jabbering.
Well worth the trip down from Manchester. I cant wait for the new album. But i shall have to.

She Makes War now announces her very last ever gig! We cannot believe it, but Laura will be playing her final SMW show at The Louisiana in Bristol on Saturday 30th of November 2019.

Artist Bio

Go grab your glitter and your 99p eyeliner because glam indie pop has a new hope in the form of She Makes War. Not actually a band but the work of the massively talented and greatly enigmatic Laura Kidd who varies from playing independently to full accompaniment, depending on the song.

Influenced by riot grrl, new wave of the wave and nineties LoFi synthpop, Kidd offers a range in her sound that extends from fragile bedroom confessions to bright polished radio friendly songs through to full on rock.

Her releases in include the albums Disarm (2010) and Little Battles (2012) that investigate the human condition with themes of sanity, birth, murder, loss, abandonment and hope. A kaleidoscope of methods, using both cutting edge digital equipment and tried and tested analogue technology to write songs that are either big and bolshie punk rock songs or gentle songs employing harp, ukulele and acoustic instruments.

These were followed by the Direction Of Travel LP which was released in April of 2016. Produced by Kidd herself and mixed by Dan Austin (Doves/Pixies), the album features a guest appearance from Throwing Muses co-founder and part time Breeder Tanya on the heartbroken song Paper Thin. It includes the single Cold Shoulder. The brooding song is a refusal to pursue an unrequited love interest any longer. The cool ambivalence in Kidd’s voice emphases a disdain that the usual shouting and screaming other bands of similar ilk just can’t match. Understated vocals also work perfectly when Kidd questions the impending fallout with the darkly humorous line; “What’s coming for me; ex-girlfriend or STD? ” With its imitation of motown drums during the chorus and the using brief rhyming couplets for the verses the rhythm gets into your head and quickly moves to your feet.

Her latest album is the critically acclaimed Brace For Impact which dropped just last year. Across twelve tracks, Kidd shows off her incredible song writing, passion and emotional depth as she expands her definitive gloom pop sound.

Drawing on personal experiences, the state of the world and society as well as a fine range of well-picked influences, ‘Brace For Impact’ continues Laura Kidd’s run of impressive self-released albums.” - XS Noize
