“Chasing Highs” by ALMA is an explosive pop hit that meshes into the generic energy of current top 40 radio before triumphantly breaking through and standing out on its own. ALMA is quite literally “Chasing Highs” all throughout this anthemic track, which she sings about all throughout the song’s catchy hook before successfully reaching those highs. “Chasing Highs” is a prime example of an indie pop song that does well in seeking top 40 validation without sacrificing originality.
ALMA’s insatiable vocals open the track as she croons over a conventional instrumental. At first glance, this feels like a track that is about to march out at an accessible, radio-friendly pace.
But the pre-chorus brings the audience in before gracefully unleashing the song’s lethal hook. ALMA sounds fantastic here, her performance pushing the track up from a normal pop hit into a contagious anthem.
It’s not hard to see why audiences will laud this massive track. ALMA is a charismatic presence with a huge voice, and here in “Chasing Highs,” she is unafraid in putting her vocals on full display. From the song’s melodic verses to its meteoric chorus, ALMA shines and elevates the song into fevered heights. While a tighter lyricism might make this song a little more impressive, “Chasing Highs” is a powerful track that will light dance floors and inspire audiences.
