Shura ponders the “what-ifs” on wistful new song “Make It Up” — listen

on June 23, 2016, 1:28pm

CoSigned songwriter Shura made her breakthrough in 2014 with synthpop gems “Just Once” and “Touch”. Fast forward two years and the UK-based musician is not only about to hit the road with M83, but she’s also less than a month away from releasing her full-length debut, Nothing’s Real

Already we’ve heard a number of cuts off that LP, including the aforementioned “Touch” and last month’s “What’s It Gonna Be?”. Today, she’s let loose another in “Make It Up”, a wistful offering in which Shura emotionally tortures herself: “Is there something that I could have said? Would it have made a difference?”

Check it out below via Apple Music, where the song was premiered this afternoon.
