Shura premieres debut track, ‘Touch’, on Fader12 February 2014
“Soft, vaguely 70s/80s pop filtered through 90s R&B…You will love it” Fader
“There’s something about Shura…an honest debut, one capable of very big things indeed” Fake DIY
It all starts with a touch, and so it begins with Shura: a performer, producer and video editor, whose debut track, ‘Touch’ suggests she may be one of the breakout talents of the year ahead. Shura’s passion for songwriting in fact came via her brother, who would DJ drum-and-bass at the weekends, and installed an early love of electronic music in his sister. What emerged was ‘Touch’. An effortless mix of hip-hop beats, lush synths, and Shura’s smooth and affecting vocal, the results are warm and accessible, both perfectly at home in 2014 and also quickly distinguishing Shura from her peers.
