Self produced by Nora, ‘You Don’t Make Me Better’ is oozing an old Hollywood glamour in it’s dream-like
melody, the track adopts soft drum pads, sweeping basslines and voice note sound samples to create a rich
atmospheric feel. Nora’s buttery vocals float in gently, and marry perfectly with the hazy rhythm. Inspired by
the moments leading up to a break-up, Nora explains, “You don’t make me better” reflects on a past
relationship. It’s the last steps of remembering and recollecting memories about what happened, how you felt
but also wonder about how you changed during the course of the relationship before fully letting go. I barely
changed the lyrics from the first time I wrote it as I wanted to keep it as natural and true to my initial thoughts
as possible. The chorus “You won’t break me, but you don’t make me better” is a simple conclusion after the
process of reflecting that no matter how painful it was, that relationship did not manage to break me but
ultimately didn’t make me better either and wasn’t healthy to stay in. Therefore, moving on was the right
decision to make”.
Influenced by the likes of Solange and Jorja Smith, Nora’s breezy Lo-Fi-fused R&B sound is brimming with honest lyricism and effortlessly smooth flows. Centraling her music around her life experiences, from love and
empowerment to personal growth, her authentic approach to storytelling is unique and raw, and signifies the
start of a promising future for the singer-songwriter.
