Her music has been described as blending “the emotional resonance of Elliott Smith with the barbed vigour of Sleater-Kinney.” She Makes War is the gloom-pop solo project of multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Laura Kidd and it ended in the winter of 2019. Between 2009 and 2019 Kidd released with She Makes War an incredible amount of music (5 albums, 2 EP’s and several singles). With the start of 2020 it is time for a new project with new music.
About her latest album “And Peace”:
“In these tumultuous times, it would be easy to feel completely powerless, but one thing I can do is create musical moments – and I’m really proud of this one.”
“And Peace” was the last album that Laura Kidd released with the project She Makes War. Right now she is very busy with creating material. ” I’m dead excited to release new music in 2020, and I hope you’ll stick with me as I start sharing work under my new name (yes, it’s a secret, and no, I’m not going to tell you what it is yet!). I’ll still always be me, Laura, a curious mix of melancholy and humour, anger and romance, light and dark, and I promise to keep putting out the most honest, thoughtful and brave music I have inside me long into the future.” (full story here)
