Aleksandra Denton, known as Shura (@weareshura), is a 23-year-old singer/songwriter/producer based in London. Other than lending her voice to a lot of Hiatus‘ songs (ie: “We Are Ghosts Now“, “Iran Air“, “Fortune’s Fool” and many more), I couldn’t find any solo albums to Shura‘s name… yet. However, she has released two singles this year, and I hope that she’s working on her debut album.

TOKiMONSTA‘s (@TOKiMONSTA) “Realla” is realla good–you know it, we know it, it can’t be argued.

She has collaborated with various artists around the big apple in 2008, and has also previously released solo projects under the aliases We Are The Arrow, Sye Spence, and Elaine. This is her now, though, and you don’t want to let her pass you by.
I was put onto her music today, with…
yU (@yuthe78er) dropped a new track last week, called “Never Burning Out”.
