Shura's Basically Like 'This Could Be Us But I'm Playing' On Her New Song

Listen to '2Shy' below.

Shura's new song about being too shy to tell someone how you really feel about them, appropriately titled "2Shy," is basically perfect.

It's like the sonic equivalent of walking into the semi-formal alone, hoping that your crush will ask you to dance.

It's the sound of filling the margins of a spiral notebook with various incarnations of what your name would be if you and your crush got hitched.

It's the feeling in the pit of your stomach when you catch a glimpse of the person you like in the reflection of the AOL 3.0 CD you've got hanging in the locker as a makeshift mirror.

Like I said, perfect.

The British singer, real name Aleksandra Denton, is someone you need to get into immediately -- if you haven't already. Her dreamy, pop/R&B synthscapes have already landed her a spot on the BBC's Sound of 2015 longlist, in case you needed, like, a super-serious formal reason to listen to more of her stuff.
