She Makes War – Direction of Travel

She Makes War is the creation of the incredibly talented Laura Kidd. Based in Bristol, she was recently touring Europe with The Levellers. Earlier in the year, she released an album entitled Direction of Travel. Packaged with some amazing artwork by Alex Bertram-Powell, the sound will appeal to those, like me, who appreciate artists such as Lykke Li and Bat For Lashes. With a great hook built around some gorgeous strings, one of the stand-out tracks is ‘Stargazing’. Direction of Travel shows that Laura Kidd is more than a writer, performer, or musician. She’s all of these for sure, but she’s also someone with an all-round vision of what she wants from She Makes War. I like that.

There’s much more about She Makes War from her website. You can get a copy of Direction of Travel from her Bandcamp page along with previous material. And here’s the video for ‘Stargazing’.
