“ALMA's star power should not be underestimated.” – The Line of Best Fit
“One To Watch” – Idolator
ALMA, a 21-year old Finnish powerhouse with bright neon green hair, and a voice that could demolish buildings, is preparing for a worldwide takeover. Her first EP, Dye My Hair, generated over 100 million combined Spotify streams, while averaging 2.5 million monthly listeners. Meanwhile, the title track is closing in on 30 million views after capturing #1 on iTunes in Finland, going Top 10 in Germany, and igniting Radio 1 in the UK. Along the way, she earned “Best Newcomer” and “Best Export” at Finland’s answer to the GRAMMYs the EMMAs and high praise from tastemakers such as Annie Mac, Grimmy and MistaJam via Interview, The Line Of Best Fit, i-D, and the Rocket Man himself, Elton John. Everything has paved the way for the release of her forthcoming 2017 anthem, “Chasing Highs.”
Releasing via Casablanca Records stateside, the single serves up a one-two punch of spunky production and sassy lyrics, culminating on an unshakable hook. It’s just a hint of what’s to come as ALMA remains hard at work on her international full-length debut in the studio alongside heavy hitters such as MNEK, Charli XCX, Rudimental, Two Inch Punch, Gorgon City, and Sub Focus to name a few.
