Shura has premiered a brand new song titled “Just Once”. This follows breakout debut track “Touch”, which picked up over a million plays across Youtube + Soundcloud, went top 3 on Hype Machine & received early spins from Radio 1.

Warm, affecting & universal, “Touch” was quickly hailed as one of the standout new songs of the year, & hinted at the arrival of a major new talent. On “Just Once”, Shura confirms that promise. It’s a more upbeat but no less melancholic mix of Janet Jackson with the intricate productions of Warpaint, or the effortless groove of early Madonna – all carried by Shura’s velvet-like vocals. Lyrically, “Just Once” is in many ways a prequel to the break-up blog-anthem that was “Touch”: it’s a snapshot of a relationship which isn’t working, + imagines being swept up with someone new, where you can be whoever you want to be. Full of sensuality and self-doubt – “If you get my name wrong / I won’t get pissed off / ‘Cos I wish I was somebody else” – Shura again achieves the immediately-recognisable, ghost-like quality of a shared romantic experience: “Just Once” is that dual sensation of fresh attraction, mixed with the memory of meeting past loves.
