She Makes War – Disarm (2010)


After a while, I grew closer to “Disarm”, than “Little Battles” – although both are excellent. It’s edgier, rawer, take NIMN. And yet, there is a sufficient amount of catchiness, and songs like “Firearms” or “I Am” will quickly get into your head. It’s great Art Rock, or whatever you want to call it.




She Makes War is the DIY gloom-pop solo project of Laura Kidd: multi-instrumentalist, visual artist and digital polymath. Blending urgent, grungey guitars with processed beats, heady pop melodies and a liberal dusting of glitter, She Makes War has drawn comparisons to artists from Blur to Blood Red Shoes, Melissa Auf der Maur, REM and Bat For Lashes.
