She Makes War releases her sophomore album Little Battles on April 9th. The album was co-produced by She Makes War and Myles Clarke (Sparkadia, Kid Harpoon, Belakiss) during the summer 2011. Recorded around the corner from the Hackney riots, London’s tension is echoed throughout the album – it’s honest and vulnerable yet confident, all melancholy romance and hope for the future.
To accompany the album, She Makes War has released a video for the song ‘Exit Strategy’. She describes the video as “Ms Pacman is brought to life in this claustrophobic Groundhog Day meets horror flick”.
Watch the video for ‘Exit Strategy’ lifted from the album below.
