Top Tracks: She Makes War – Stargazing

There’s something to be said for those who can craft a beautiful melody seemingly out of thin air and ‘Stargazing’ is a perfect example of that rare musical phenomenon. Consisting of just Laura Kidd’s mellow vocals, a simple acoustic guitar pattern and soothing splashes of strings She Makes War has created a vast and striking musical landscape from the sparsest of arrangements, like a city of clouds standing firm against the breeze. There is little of the harshness of war in this gorgeous track save perhaps the uncertain calm of the aftermath. The song captures a sense of malaise and loss tinged with a glimmer of hope and determination to find the silver lining. The stunning ‘Stargazing’ is the new single from her latest album Direction Of Travel.
