The fragile, beautiful debut single “Touch” put Moscow-via-London singer Shura on the map. Now her second single has arrived, and it’s described as a prequel to the first one. Like “Touch” before it, “Just Once” distills the essence of ’80s pop classics like “Time After Time” and “Like A Prayer” and gently breathes it into a misty funk groove not unlike what you’d hear on a Blood Orange record. And like “Touch,” “Just Once” has an instantly memorable chorus: “Have you ever been lost? We could get lost. I wanna get lost.” Get lost in it below.
No details on a Shura album yet, but I’d sure be happy to hear about one.
