Track Of The Day: She Makes War – ‘Devastate Me’

If you’re looking for a colourful way to neutralise the noise that social media overload can create – look no further than She Makes War‘s new video for her latest single ‘Devastate Me’. The bright visuals show the Bristol-based artist & producer playing her buzzing guitar riffs and giving absolutely no fucks about her online presence. The track is taken from her upcoming album Brace For Impact, which is set to be released on October 5th.

Speaking about the track, She Makes War (aka Laura Kidd) explains: “I wanted to make something bouncy and fun, an antidote to the self-indulgent testosterone-fuelled ‘rock’ videos of the past and present, something that doesn’t take itself so seriously but can still accentuate a killer riff. So here it is. I can rock out without my cock out. My balls are nowhere near the wall. Let’s celebrate our individuality, let’s have some fun.”

It’s this fusion of fun and freedom that makes Kidd’s music so catchy, and her buoyant attitude and blistering guitar riffs make ‘Devastate Me’ an infectious dose of punk-infused pop. A fiercely devoted, independent DIY force, She Makes War has crafted her success from a close relationship with fans, placing importance on her music’s physical form and an emphasis on the live experience. She Makes War will be heading out on tour this October (dates listed below), and she’ll be playing the immense Loud Women Festival this weekend at Tufnell Park Dome (get your tickets here).
