Shura has announced a show in The academy this November. The London based artist is set to follow up her critically acclaimed debut ‘Nothing’s Real’ later this year. Untill then teaser single BKLYNLDN will have to suffice. The track’s NSFW video picks up where the video for Touch left off several years ago.
“with ‘BKLYNLDN’ I wanted to explore having both a sonic & lyrical evolution. It’s about desire – playing with the idea of it being all consuming and at times overwhelming.” says Shura. “It starts with the immediacy of physical desire – ‘this isn’t love’ and yet as the song unfolds that sentiment begins to unravel; I am clearly in love and instead of my girlfriend coming to London, I end up moving Brooklyn. I wanted to capture that reversal and for me that section feels like my summer, skipping through Brooklyn, holding hands with my girlfriend and singing out loud without caring about how stupid you look.”
Shura at The Academy Dublin on Saturday 16th November. Tickets €20.00 on sale this Friday from 10am from usual outlets.
