Discovery: Huru

Huru is a London-based indie pop singer songwriter whose experimental, electronic tale of heartbreak and betrayal caught my attention. It’s called Guilty.

Guilty opens with a cacophony of sound, giving an unsettling feeling, mirroring emotional turmoil. Things quiet down and Huru’s unique vocals come in. Expressive and rich, they tell a story of catching a loved one in a lie. When the chorus hits, so does a groovy beat and percussion. Just when you think you’ve got a handle on the track, a rapped verse provides yet another element.

Huru’s sound is inspired by alt-pop contemporaries like Arlo Parks, Denai Moore and Willow, and it is realised through collaboration with Scott Colcombe. She definitely one to keep an eye on. She’s bringing something really fresh to pop.
