Shura has been continuing her impressive rise, having appeared this week on the musical rite-of-passage that is 'Later With Jools Holland', while London quintet Pumarosa have been lighting up the blog world of late. Their sprawling, hypnotic seven minute debut single 'Priestess' gets a reworking from the typically more concise Shura.
Shura's take on 'Priestess' doesn't mess around too much with the original's self-proclaimed "industrial spiritual" sound, albeit adding more of an electronic-led danceable tinge to proceedings. Think a bit of Primal Scream, a bit of Savages, and a bit of latter day Arcade Fire.
