Shura shares home video for hidden album track ‘311215’

The song's about "fear of death", she says.
Shura has released a new video for her track ’311215’ – check it out below.

It’s a “hidden” cut from her recent album ‘Nothing’s Real’. with the footage pieced together from home videos.

“’311215’ is about fear of death,” says Shura. “The death of my parents and to a certain extent my own. That everything must come to an end.

“I chose to end my record with this song in part because it deals with endings. The last sound you hear is the sound of the front door of my flat closing after my twin brother and I. For me this sound symbolises the end of the record and the inevitable separation that occurs when your parents die and you become an orphan.

“I wanted to use excerpts from family recordings to make a video because so much of the fabric of my record is made up not only of samples from these videos but also my experience of childhood. The lyrical content of ‘311215’ is quite dark. I wanted to pair this with beautiful moments from my childhood as a contrast. There is something antagonistic about it.”

Shura’s off on a headline tour of the UK this winter. Catch her at:

06 Bristol, Trinity
