Discovery: Shuba

Shuba is an American pop singer songwriter of Indian descent whose new track Indian Summer was inspired by a date she arranged through the dating app Hinge.

As you might expect from the title, Indian Summer is full of bright, warm vibes but there is an undercurrent of something different and unique about it. The details in the lyrics are well-observed, with a great sense of humour. Shuba wrote things song as a reaction against the assumption that she has to cover up her sensuality as a woman and it shows. The song has sensuality pouring from its every note.

Though new to me, Shuba has already built quite a following, notably opening for big acts such as Train and Lindsey Stirling and proving a hit on Tik Tok where she has over four million followers.
