With her neon-yellow hair and no-fucks-given attitude, ALMA doesn’t come across as your average pop-star. Yet with her soulful voice and award-bagging capabilities (she won two out of the five awards she was nominated for at the EMMAs this year, Finland’s answer to The Grammys), the 21-year-old is busy making her name with feel-good powerhouse pop.

Latest track ‘Chasing Highs’, with its soaring, uplifting chorus, is one worth adding to your pre-drinks playlist. Listen below:

We had a quick catch up with ALMA ahead of her upcoming shows at Oslo and The Great Escape.
