Shura returns with 7-minute disco epic

Shura caught my attention earlier this year with 2 Shy, a soft explosion of synth-pop that brought to mind Janet Jackson at her most seductive.

The singer, whose real name is Alexandra Denton, was a runner-up in the BBC's Sound of 2015 after teaching herself how to use music production software on YouTube.

Her new single White Light shows just how proficient she's become. A seven-minute space disco epic, it's the Cerrone tribute Goldfrapp always threatened to make. Supple guitar licks and intergalactic synths abound, as Denton's feathery vocals glide towards the milky way.

Strap on your space boots and get ready for blast off.
