"Minefields" is a song about emotional danger and learning to trust your gut. I wanted to celebrate it being the second single off my new album "Little Battles" by making it a bit more deluxe, so the song is accompanied by an entire live set from a night I run called "Breakfast With Apollo", part of my quest to promote collaboration and community building amongst DIY musicians.

I'm an entirely self funded artist trying to spend more time on the SMW project, but I also strongly believe that people should be able to participate in the arts by contributing what they can afford. So, if you want to get involved and help fund the project please do, but don't feel bad if you can't.

There are lots of ways of helping DIY artists like myself get their music out to a wider audience, I've written about it on my website here: shemakeswar.com/community/a-call-to-arms/

Lots of love

about

She Makes War Bristol, UK

She Makes War is the 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. ... more

Track Name: Minefields
Stranger, lover
Suck air and water
Minefields and murder
His breath I long for

I'm in the wrong place
My stomach is sick
As I flounder around trying not to lose sight of it
Nothing feels right
He's too far away
Let the planets collide cos there's no point in fighting them now
No

Ice flows through my veins
Hot love will soothe me
Steep hills and slate skies
My eyes in your eyes

I'm in the wrong place
My stomach is sick
As I flounder around trying not to lose sight of it
Nothing feels right
He's too far away
Let the planets collide cos there's no point in fighting them now
My eyes in your eyes

I'm in the wrong place
My stomach is sick
As I flounder around trying not to lose sight of it
Nothing feels right
He's too far away
Let the planets collide cos there's no point in fighting them now
My eyes in your eyes
