Indie pop act Shura provide our latest video of the week, with the sugary sweet, 80’s pop throwback “2Shy”. Directed by David M. Helman, the video stands out for its retro aesthetic, seemingly achieved using what look like vintage anamorphic lenses and some subtle VFX. Well, regardless of the technicalities, the nostalgic tone of the song and visuals combine to take us back to a time when the light just had a different shine to it.

A tendency towards nostalgia really seems to be ‘in’ right now, and although I don’t agree with all of it, “2Shy” proves that it’s sometimes okay to look back. MB
