New Find: Alma's (Very) Good "Karma"
Finland's Alma makes a great first impression with debut single, "Karma."

ALMA’s debut single, “Karma,” was greeted with an outpouring of blog love in 2016. She cemented her status as One To Watch when the follow-up went viral. “Dye My Hair” exploded on Spotify (its parent EP has amassed 100 million streams) and charted across Europe. The 21-year-old rolls out a new single called “Chasing Highs” today (March 23) and it’s her catchiest offering to date. “I didn’t know what to do, who’s gonna be the first one to move,” the Finnish phenomenon sings, “I wanna get closer to you.”

The summery track really comes to life on the tropical-tinged chorus and post-chorus hook: “I’m chasing high, high, high, highs. You are getting closer.” This song could be ALMA’s invitation to pop radio and a much wider audience. It also promises great things from the newcomers debut LP. She’s been in the studio with some of pop’s coolest names including MNEK, Charli XCX, Rudimental, Two Inch Punch, Gorgon City and Sub Focus — so expect big things. Listen to her latest single below.
