Shura announced yesterday that she was releasing a brand new track entitled ‘What’s it Gonna Be?’ from her upcoming debut album. I immediately went into excitement overdrive (especially as this is the first truly new music from Shura in a while) and during the first listen, was so happy that Shura had once again knocked it out of the park. I’ve been playing it on repeat ever since.
‘What’s It Gonna Be?’ is more upbeat than Shura’s previous tracks such as ‘Indecision’ or ‘Touch’ and it is an absolute banger. I knew I was going to like it as Shura never disappoints but wow, I bloody love it. I am also a huge fan of indie and synth-pop but this really is the genre at its finest – dreamy, with catchy and relatable lyrics but also a sound that is hugely distinctive to the artist. Shura’s unique The War on Drugs-esque guitars and breathy vocals are in full play here, she has just amped up the pace.
Shura’s debut album Nothing’s Real is released July 8th and is available to preorder now. She is also headlining KOKO next week, and this new track has got me even more excited for both her gig and album release.
