I have listened to “Love For That” by Mura Masa feat. Shura possibly a hundred times. I have watched the music video maybe a million times. No shame because how could I not?! Masa’s fun flute and steel drum sound mixed in with Shura’s magical lungs that reach the most beautiful pitch gives my ears such a buzz. The music video only adds to the charisma of the song. Theatrics, dancing and an enticing storyline will leave you absolutely falling in love with everything about this single. Check it out below!
Alex Crossan, the 19 year old “beat-slayer, heart-breaker, producer, singer, writer, lover” has got some serious musical chops. Appearing on BBC’s Sound of 2016 List and featured on Spotify’s Spotlight UK, there’s no doubt we’ll be hearing more of this kid. He sets on a European tour starting in the spring, so if you’re around you better not miss this!
His EP Someday Somewhere released earlier this year and has gotten some great reviews.. that’s just judging by the comments on his Facebook page. For lack of a more intricate description upon first listen to the EP, it is pure fire. The funk and high pitched sounds are similarly stimulating to that of a Years and Years/Frank Ocean musical brain child with a heavy dash of electronics to give it the edge so prominent in his sound. This guy needs to come to the US asap. I’m serious.
