hmv's Next Big Thing... #33 Shura

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you sultry songstress Shura...


Who Is She?

Shura is 28-year old Aleksandra Denton and she hails from just outside Manchester. She's remixed Jessie Ware, released a series of impressive singles and now has her debut album ready to drop in the coming months. 


Who Does She Sound Like?

This is ethereal electro, think Lykke Li, Chvrches, early Bjork, pulsing beats beneath vocals that soar so very high, add a touch of 80s pop too, particularly True Blue era Madonna and vintage Janet Jackson. 


Why Should I Be Excited?

An incredible voice and gorgeous production, it's the perfect combination. 


Can I Hear Something?

Of course, her new single 'White Light' is below for you. You can check out her singles here in our digital store.
