The Finnish rising star, who had one of the Top 60 Singles of 2017 with “Chasing Highs,” has just rolled out her Heavy Rules mixtape and it features 6-brand new tracks, including collaborations with MØ (“Dance For Me“), Tove Styrke (“Good Vibes“) and Kiiara (“Chit Chat“).
The entire mixtape — from the empowering opener “Legend” to the chic club pulsations of the MØ-assisted “Dance For Me” to the #SomethingMoreUrban “Fake Gucci” and “Back2u” — plays like a complete soundtrack for the summer. They’re all instant bops, but I must highlight closer “Chit Chat,” featuring “Gold” hit-maker Kiiara. The track is a pulsating cross between Tove Lo‘s Lady Wood and the dreamy disco pulsations of Disclosure. It’s major, for sure
It simply bursts at the seams; a kitchen sink of powerhouse vocals and big melodies dressed up with the right kind of modern production sheen. And yet, there’s an underlying sense that this is only a small sampling of what ALMA still has to offer.
This week, ALMA also announces an anticipated tour with stops in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and more.
ALMA’s brand new Heavy Rules mixtape is also available on Apple Music now!
