Shura has unveiled a Lindstrom & Prins Thomas remix of ‘Nothing’s Real’, the title track and new single from her critically-acclaimed, Top 15 debut album (out now via Polydor). Having just concluded an extensive US tour with Tegan & Sara and then M83, a run of European headline shows will follow (including London’s Kentish Town Forum on December 7th).
Given a dizzying disco spin today by Lindstrom & Prins Thomas, ‘Nothing Real’ is a journey that starts in Manchester, where Shura and her twin brother Nick were born. She played for Manchester City Girls throughout her teenage years, before studying at University and traveling for a period around South America. This sequence of events broadened not only Shura’s personal horizons, but also gave her the time to articulate a messy break-up into emotional, heartfelt Pop. She returned to the UK and wrote ‘Touch’, whose resonant lyrics and quickly-viral video (featuring her friends snogging) resulted in one of the most enduring blog successes of recent times.
‘Nothing’s Real’ features songs written and painstakingly recorded across two years in Shura’s Shepherds Bush bedroom – the site of which is blown up on the album’s striking artwork – but also reaches back further than that: into parents, childhood, past relationships, and the possibilities of the future. Threaded throughout the album are samples of home movies from Shura’s childhood, and her lifelong passion for Sci-fi: the combination of which gives ‘Nothing’s Real’ its otherworldly, multiverse-feel. “I became obsessed with something like ‘Interstellar’ during the making of this album, which at its core is really all about time, death and family. The fact it’s set in space is almost irrelevant.” So if ‘Nothing’s Real’ refers to releasing yourself from your past, it’s also a time-capsule of an album about all those loves we take with us into the future, and further into the unknown
