Swivelling giddily from Prince-like jams to Dilla-esque loops, Shura coats it all with her own sugary sweet vocals which recall a myriad of pop royalty.

If you’d claimed just a few years ago that Shura would make an album exploring “all that love is”, few would have been as surprised as Aleksandra Denton herself (nicknamed Shura at a young age). ‘forevher,’ then, is a record born from a budding romance, covering everything from the initial pull of desire, to the joy of finally being together, to recognising the moment when the connection develops from lust into something scarily meaningful. And whilst how to live – and love – as a queer woman has always been integral to Shura, it’s remarkable to hear these stories twisted through such a gorgeous amalgam of influences: Joni Mitchell and Minnie Riperton, Bon Iver and Frank Ocean, Prince and Ariel Pink. “Forevher employs a simple premise of inserting queer love into the cis-hetero romantic narratives that have dominated western culture for millennia – and it works.” – 7/10 – Loud & Quiet
