Due for release next week, "Fine" is the latest single from Danish alt pop singer and song-writer Lisa Alma. Another track taken from her forthcoming album Sweater (see also the mesmerising "Man"), it's further evidence that Alma is one of the most exciting new artists around. Smooth and tranquil on the surface, with exquisite vocals over a spacious electronic arrangement, Fine is at times tantalisingly slow and sparse. It's a measure of how well the mood is set that the calm never needs to be followed by a storm, but the lush entry into the chorus is still a welcome release and relief.
