As a successful 2016 draws to a close, electronic pop originator Shura, will be headlining a short UK tour to coincide with the release of ‘311215’, the latest single from this year’s critically acclaimed debut, ‘Nothing’s Real’.
The single is celebrated with the release of a very personal video made up of family home video recordings from her childhood. Reflecting on the inspiration for the video Shura explains:
“I wanted to use excerpts from family recordings to make a video because so much of the fabric of my record is made up not only of samples from these videos but also my experience of childhood. The lyrical content of 311215 is quite dark. I wanted to pair this with beautiful moments from my childhood as a contrast. There is something antagonistic about it.”
Following an extensive tour supporting Canadian twins, Tegan and Sara, Shura will play a number of European dates, including four shows here in the UK:
