about

The first official She Makes War release EVER, "Three...Two...One" came about to celebrate Laura's involvement with local art project Live At The Apollo.

Three local artists took over an abandoned Apollo video shop for a month and used the space to showcase local talent - photographers, painters, musicians...you name it! She Makes War performed twice at the Apollo and spent many hours volunteering in the shop, getting to know local residents and breaking down the barrier of anonymity that is so prevalent in modern London.

Three...Two...One was released as a limited edition art piece on 25th June 2009. The package comprises a data CD containing the three tracks as high quality audio files, PDF booklet and 8 videos plus a signed and numbered print of the cover art. 50 copies were lovingly handmade by Laura herself and sold out in late 2009.

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: Picture Of Us
You painted a picture of us
Created the space between us
To wonder, to wonder - yeah
You feinted, you ducked you parried
Serrated the "load" you carried
To wander, to wander - yeah

With our brains blacked out
With our eyes scratched out

Take it boy - take my picture
You take a little piece of my heart and soul with you
It doesn't matter what you say
It's what you capture
Take it boy - take my picture
You take a little piece of my heart, my heart, my heart
It doesn't matter what you say
It only matters what you do

Blood blisters and thoughts of thunder
Assemble to suck me under
I stand here with eyes uplifted
You showed me how quick it shifted

With our brains blacked out
With our eyes scratched out

Take it boy - take my picture
You take a little piece of my heart and soul with you
It doesn't matter what you say
It's what you capture
Take it boy - take my picture
You take a little piece of my heart, my heart, my heart
It doesn't matter what you say
It only matters what you do
Track Name: Eye Spy
Oh, isn't it fun to be free?
I'm pretty sure you'd agree
There's nothing better than winning

Surprise - nothing is quite as it seems
He's taking tea with the Queen
While everyone else breaks their promises

How did it come to this?
Now it seems so obvious

Oh I spy
Two million children have died
Isn't that what we desired?
Isn't that what we all wanted?
Track Name: Scared To Capsize
Wasn't that what you said?
Wasn't that what you meant to say?
With three little words you lied
- I don't think you realised

Wasn't worried by the time, oh
The time, but
What took you so long?
Wasn't bothered by the lukewarm emotion
I played along

Wasn't that what you said?
Wasn't that what you meant to say?
With three little words you lied
- I don't think you realised

So you spill your heart all over computer
But not to my eyes
Darling drink your nervous wine, yeah
I know you're
Scared to capsize

Wasn't that what you said?
Wasn't that what you meant to say?
With three little words you lied
- I don't think you realised

There's nothing to say, there's nothing to say
There's nothing to do, there's nothing to do
There's nothing to say
I think that it's time you went away
I'm sorry I wrote, I'm sorry I called
I'm sorry I broke your easy fall
I'm sorry I cared, I'm sorry I tried
I'm sorry I cried in front of you

Wasn't that what you said?
Wasn't that what you meant to say?
With three little words you lied
- I don't think you realised
