She-Makes-War

A one-person industry, Bristol’s Laura Kidd is as comfortable strumming a ukulele as blasting an electric guitar, on songs covering the political or highly personal, or any point inbetween. Something of a cult icon for her fanbase, the Patreon-funded ‘Brace For Impact’ is album number four for Kidd, and follows collaborations with the likes of Tanya Donelly, backing band work for Tricky and Viv Albertine, and a one-woman stand up show at the Edinburgh festival. The songs remain transcendent though: poignant or celebratory, lushly orchestrated or starkly beautiful, She Makes War is a full force for good.
