Album review: Shura - Nothing's Real
Share This Article:
★★★★☆Two year's after the release of her debut single, 'Touch', hotly tipped pop sensation Shura’s debut record, Nothing’s Real, has arrived. Shura has been one to watch for a while. The release of the desirous, disco-infused ‘Touch’ created a buzz that has slowly grown, culminating in Shura being included in the BBC Sound of 2015 poll. The ‘one-to-watch’ label burdened the release with the weight of expectation - but it doesn’t disappoint. Intelligently produced, well tempered and rife with candid, relatable lyrics this is a proper pop record. The glittering release has been meticulously put together, with impossibly elegant electronic production meaning each track runs fluidly into the next. The overarching themes of love and longing, along with the sophisticated songwriting, makes Nothing’s Real a thrilling listen; from the opening electronic whirs of album opener ‘(i)’, which launches straight into the alternative disco anthem ‘Nothing’s Real’ you know you’re onto a winner. Lyrically Nothing’s Real is refreshingly honestly.
