Shura!!!! pic.twitter.com/O0QOppA1Ka— New Slang | June 13 with Two Door Cinema Club (@NewSlangClub) July 7, 2016
Thursday 15th August at Banquet Records, 6:00pm
The night before her new album is released, the electro-tinged indie popper Shura returns to Kingston to play an intimate set in the shop. She was last in Kingston in 2016 at New Slang with her debut album, We're super excited to have her back and to hear some new songs from her second album titled forevher.
‘forevher,’ then, is a record born from a budding romance, covering everything from the initial pull of desire, to the giddy joy of finally being together, to recognising the moment when the connection develops from lust into something scarily meaningful. Here is a classic London-to-NYC love story, but one told through the filter of dating apps and Skype chats. And whilst how to live – and love – as a queer woman has always been integral to Shura, it’s remarkable to hear these stories twisted through such a gorgeous amalgam of influences: Joni Mitchell and Minnie Riperton, Bon Iver and Frank Ocean, Prince and Ariel Pink. Through these inspirations, Shura’s own modern, outlier perspective found a newer, more daring approach to sound and song.
In-store Grade B.
Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of forevher from us.
Albums will be posted, tickets are for collection from the shop on the day of the in-store, please bring your order number with you. The Album is released 16th August.
