Shura, from London, released her debut single about a week ago. The track reminds me a bit of Glass Candy and various others from the Italians Do It Better label. There is a very crystalline, slow-moving quality to the track. It seems like you could find this track in an indie movie with a secondary color palette, neon lights and lots of mirrors. Shura's vocals are sweet and serene, and the very 90s plucking of synths throughout the track is unshakeable. Lyrically, it is easy to miss the somewhat melancholy and pensive feelings they contain. 'Touch' is a track that is soft and blissful, it nearly floats away from you but Shura's clear and neon vocals hold on to you.
