From Finland’s thriving pop scene comes Ufoja: a lovely burst of futuristic, yet warm-hearted anthemic pop music by Vilma Alina. It’s got a lovely rising bridge, a chorus that’s rhythmically confusing enough to get stuck in your brain and just enough robotic bells and whistles to keep it interesting all the way to the end.
Vilma has been on the Finnish pop scene since about 2014, as a solo artist and playing keyboards live for fellow Finnish pop star Robin. As we’re going to keep saying at Listen Outside, you don’t have to understand the lyrics to get the song. I’ll be keeping an eye out for Vilma in the future and giving her album a listen too.
