Track Of The Day: She Makes War - 'Cold Shoulder'

The excellent Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist Laura Kidd (a.k.a She Makes War) struck gold earlier this year with the release of her third album 'Direction Of Travel'. Sticking with you after just a few listens, it's the sort of highly accomplished record that casts its spell song by song, full of bright melody, vibrant delivery, illuminating arrangements all brought together with magnificent songwriting. 

One of 2016's most essential records, 'Direction Of Travel' also features collaborations with Mark Chadwick of the Levellers and Tanya Donelly. The album is available now on CD and download, and She Makes War will be touring throughout the rest of the year. With shades of Elastica and generous helpings of light and shade, the superb 'Cold Shoulder' is just one side of this multi-faceted artist's musical persona.
