New Music: Shura - What's It Gonna Be? (Video)
Following on from the Soundcloud stream of Shura’s truly excellent What’s It Gonna Be, now there’s an equally excellent video. It takes all the classic elements and clichés of the teen high school drama and then plays around with them a little – rather like a 2016 remake of a 1986 movie. It’s a lovely little story, shot with a wonderful colour palette (how have they made high school look so great?) and if you don’t feel a little better about the world after watching it then please check your pulse. Oh and apparently the main male character in the video is Shura’s twin brother, which makes it even better!
Shura was of course nominated for the BBC Sound of 2015, but with this song and an album to follow in July it seems that her star is still rising in 2016. She plays London's Koko tonight, with a slot at Glastonbury also just announced.
