Words: Saam Das
I must admit that I'm pretty taken aback by the amount of attention London act Shura has received in the last couple of weeks. But very much in a good way, as it's culminated in well over 100,000 Soundcloud plays of her latest track 'Touch' - moving away from her previous night-folk efforts and more into the realm of R&B, led by her continually haunting vocals. Check out the new snog-infused video for 'Touch' below.
If you fancy catching up on a bit of back story, we first wrote about Shura back in 2011, also mentioning her excellent collaborative work with Hiatus on one of our appearances on BBC 6 Music. I even caught her live many years before (2006-ish) at our university acoustic night. Much has changed since then for Aleksandra Denton and we look forward to hearing more of her new direction.
