Touch - Shura's video reached closed to 3 million views on YouTube, but that's only scratching the surface. Before you continue reading this, watch Shura's unique song turned into a beautifully constructed video.

This girl, unequivocally, has created charming and lasting art. Her music and videos are laced with archetypal young adults who suddenly act out of their typical behaviour and genuinely challenge your own perceptions. The most refreshing part about Shura is that she creates her music and videoclips with under-tones and over-tones relating to acceptance, youth and sexual orientation - not in an attempt to provoke disharmony or begin divisive conversations, but to honestly portray her life.

“I’m a lesbian,” she said. “That’s how I identify myself. But I think there’s a massive spectrum for everyone and that’s something that I wanted to convey in the video."



Having released her first album this year in July, Shura is touring the world in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and our very own Australia. If you're interested in tickets, head over to Handsome Tours and make sure you don't miss out. She's definitely an artist to watch in the future. Taking away how Shura identifies herself, her music speaks beyond making a point about sexuality - you'll find that she's familiar with the nuances of indie, alternative and electro-pop music. Even if you're not a big listener of these genres, give her album a go.
