Shura announces exclusive Melbourne sideshow for 2016/17 Falls Festival tour.
Shura shot into a global spotlight with her first single ‘Touch’ skyrocketed across the internet, fuelled by angst-ridden disco sounds and a DIY video of her friend kissing. Clocking over 30 million plays, the single of launched sell-out worldwide shows, and fans in the least probable of places from Kylie Minogueto a Live Lounge cover from Mumford & Sons.
Now renowned for crafting 80s-tinged R&B pop gems, pillow-soft beats, her debut album which was painstakingly recorded across two years in her Shepherds Bush bedroom entitled ‘Nothing’s Real’ has especially resonated with Australian fans. Winning high-rotation on triple j play with six of its tracks, and countless spins across community radio, hailed as “BLOODY GREAT’” by Project U, “effortlessly putting pop music back in the good books” by Purple Sneakers and even SBS gave her a shout-out for celebrating teen LGBT love.
Having toured internationally with the likes of CHVRCHES, M83 and Marina & The Diamonds and graced festival stages including Primavera Sound, Electric Picnic and Bestival, Shura’s Australian tour marks one of the season’s most anticipated debuts.
