Denmark native Lisa Alma’s debut album is an electrified mashup of piano and percussion… we can promise you twelve tracks of blissed out pop for the modern lover of 80s sensibilities. Wonderland Magazine
a shivery piece of electro R&B. Put it on late at night when you’re feeling amorous—this is a baby-making tune. Under The Radar Magazine
A slick offering, bordering synthfunk and late-night disco. It’s got juicy plastic beats laying firm foundations for tinkled ivories galore and her ’80s croon – it’s as atmospheric as The xx, but as melodic as any Top 40 pop import. Song of The Day. The Line Of Best Fit

‘Fern’ is an elegant and expansive track, a perfect entry point into Lisa Alma’s dreamy pop universe evocative of the golden hour before sunset. ‘Man’ is a minimal but wholly mesmerizing combination of chilled synths, atmospheric glitches and serene keyboard twinkles set off by Alma’s gorgeous falsetto, while ‘Fine’ continues in the vein of a fleeting glimpse into a rich and alluring world of natural delights and sensations guided by Alma’s exquisite vocals.
Working and living as an artist in Copenhagen, Lisa Alma’s endeavours in performance art and photography give her music a sense of multiplicity, allowing her to draw on the emotions and subtleties of other mediums to imbue her music with a sense of mesmerizing visual power. “When I make music, I can combine all sorts of artistic expressions into one output,” she says.
Creating a complete universe of emotional and artistic expression, Alma works to refine textures that express both intimacy and transformative experiences. ‘Sweater’ is the finest example of this yet – an emotionally resonant record that truly articulates innermost emotional desires in a way that feels inclusive, not intrusive, and sets of intimate revelations in an unexpectedly affecting fashion.
‘Sweater’ holds much promise for the future of Lisa Alma – her composition skills go from strength to strength and grand melodic climaxes come as effortlessly as the intimacy she fosters with her listeners. “When I make music, I can combine all sorts of artistic expressions into one output,” she says. Endowed with a thoroughly modern aesthetic and an enchanting voice, ‘Sweater’ drifts and bobs with a gentleness of spirit and a deceptively broad arrangement, encapsulating a full-heartedness and its labour-of-love production proudly as it’s dreamy soundscapes stretch far into visceral horizons.
