In our interview with Laura Kidd last year, we discovered the woman behind the She Makes War alias is pretty prolific; she writes, plays and co-produces her own music, books her own tours, shoots her own videos, and then writes extensively about it all on her blog. It's therefore fitting that today we should premiere not one, but two videos from the self-proclaimed 'gloom-pop' artist. Watch 'Delete' above and 'Butterflies' below.

The two tracks are taken from newly-released EP Butterflies, out independently yesterday via Bandcamp. Alongside two other new tracks, the EP also features four live versions of album tracks 'Butterflies', 'Exit Strategy', 'In This Boat' and 'Minefields' performed with a backing band featuring members of Hysterical Injury, Gabby Young and Other Animals, Talk In Colour, Dana Jade and Djevara.

She Makes War will be launching the EP this week on three dates: in Bristol tomorrow, August 28 at Start the Bus and in London, on Thursday 29 at Rattlesnake and Friday 30 at the Sebright Arms. See the She Makes War Facebook page for more details.
