A Pop artist singing about not wanting to be in love? Has it ever happened before? I don’t believe it has. LILURA’s nihilistic approach to romantic Electro Indie Pop was creates one of the most ethereally compelling soundscapes I’ve heard from the Pop arena to date. It should come as no surprise that the up and coming Electro Pop artist takes inspiration from iconic acts such as David Bowie, Radiohead & Kate Bush to create her pensive offerings of poignant, euphoric synergy. Whilst the lyrics may be a little pensive her vocals are anything but, she gives Pop acts such as Taylor Swift a run for her money. Dare I say she has a touch of the Riot Grrrl empowerment within her vocal range? The passion which she pours into her vocals is perceptible right from the first verse, but the track only gains momentum from there on out. The Scottish singer songwriter may be new to the scene under the name of LILURA, but she’s no stranger to the stage lights after she’s toured the UK festival circuit with her acoustic projects.
