What’s this? Finnish pop visionary ALMA continues with what’s been a sonically exciting run-up to the release of her second album – she’s back with new single ‘Summer Really Hurt Us’.
What’s it like? A tale of love lost, paired with a deliciously dramatic synth production to elevate the storytelling even further.
Written by? “In ‘Summer Really Hurt Us’ I go back in time, I think it was summer 2018/2019 when I really felt like I lost my control. I was doing show after show and going out a lot. That mix is just not great. We’re all human and when life gets too much we tend to do things that hurt us and others. I think for me the biggest lesson that summer was that I’m so privileged to have such an amazing group of friends around me. Even if I lose my control they will always be there to back me up and help me come out the other side. We are there for each other, we support each other no matter what.”
Written by? The artist herself, along with Elvira Anderfjärd, Joacim Bo Persson and Sebastian Arman.
More from ALMA? Earlier in the summer she released the equally stun ‘Everything Beautiful‘.
