Rising pop sensation ALMA shares the acoustic piano version for her single Chasing Highs. A beautifully raw rendition of the hit single, the stripped-back piano version showcased the raw, emotive message in the song’s lyrics. Listen here.
ALMA’s extraordinary soulful voice and sharply observed lyrics hit somewhere between Sia and Amy Winehouse. The 21-year-old Finnish powerhouse (currently working with MNEK, Rudimental, Charlie XCX, Sub Focus and 2 Inch Punch) needn’t worry about clichés: with her long, electric-neon hair, baggy punk attire and ‘zeros fucks’ magnetic attitude she is everything but the stereotypical pop princess. “She looks like a cybergoth reimagining of a young Adele and sounds like Beth Ditto had she been raised on tropical house,” The Observer wrote recently – they hit the nail on the head.
ALMA recently joined Ray BLK on the bill for theAnnie Mac curated AMP Collected night at the Jazz Café. An extensive run of headline dates and festival appearances across the UK and Europe follows this Spring, including a headline show at London’s OSLO (on 16th May) and an appearance at the Great Escape Festival (on 18th May).
