She may have been dropping tracks such as Touch back in 2016 which too closely mirrored Solange’s Missing You from 2012, but with Forevher, queer Manchester synth-disco artist Shura has found certainty in her own voice and style. She’s Shura herself! Religion (u can lay your hands on me) is a swaggering case-in-point. “I wanna consecrate your body/Turn the water to wine/I know you’re thinking about kissing too” is straight outta Fleabag and equally hot and compelling.
