Taura is an emerging pop artist based in London, releasing her debut EP Lucky Girls this Autumn.
As a completely independent artist, Taura has used her freedom to build this project almost entirely by herself. From the writing and production, to the artwork and styling, Lucky Girls has been a truly independent creation. Despite working previously as a songwriter and producer, Taura’s artist debut is where her music stands out. With powerfully relatable lyrics and beautifully addictive melodies, Lucky Girls transparently describes one of the most pivotal years in Taura’s life so far. With a mix of vulnerability and unapologetic truthfulness, this EP exposes thoughtful lyrics followed up with some lighter, sensual tracks.
After studying music at Goldsmiths, she turned her hand to music production, allowing her to hone in on her craft and work as a writer. By combining multiple layered vocals, a more stripped back approach to production, and a background in Jazz piano, Taura creates a relaxed poppy/R&B sound, drawing inspiration from the likes of Sabrina Claudio, Syd and Dua Lipa.
The first track off her EP, ‘Good Summer’ was released on August 1st. Such an overwhelming response for a brand new independent artist has immediately placed Taura on the map as someone to watch. This will be followed by title track ‘Lucky Girls’ on September 12th, and her first video shortly afterwards. Each track off the EP will be subsequently released in order, to allow space for the individual projects to breath and take their own form, before coming together as a whole.
