Shura (aka Aleksandra Denton) was born in London to a Russian actress and an English documentary filmmaker.
Shura’s passion for music came via her brother, who would DJ drum-and-bass at the weekends, and installed an early love of electronic music in his sister.
As funky as Blood Orange‘s ‘You’re Not Good Enough’, the track has gone Top 5 on Hype Machine, and picked up over 100,000 plays in its first week on Soundcloud.
‘Touch’ is a break-up song which captures the sadness of not being with somebody anymore, but also the infinite tenderness of your time together.
The sensual debut video was directed by and starring Shura’s group of friends and features a cameo from Shura herself:
‘Touch’ is also on the Indietronica February playlist.
