Making waves: Lil Halima

Norse code: Lil Halima

This week's hottest brand new act...

KEY TRACK: Jasmine
LABEL: Island
MANAGEMENT: Marie Komissar
FACEBOOK: @lilhalimamusic

WHO: Lilian Halima, ask Lil Halima, is Norway’s latest promising pop export.

WHAT: Thoughtful pop music. Lil Halima sees music in colours, which she says helps mould her songs into the all-encompassing experiences they are. See recent single Jasmine for evidence.

WHERE: Half Kanya and half Norwegian, Lil Halima is from Bardu on Norway’s northern tip.


Yes, yes, lsland’s deal follows the major’s excellent work with Sigrid, whose music is similarly informed by the country’s picturesque calm. Lil Halima was originally discovered by Def Jam on Instagram.


New EP Love Songs For Bad Lovers, has just dropped. Seek it out and drive into its wispy melodies and fractured beats.


Enjoy. And look out for UK dates coming soon.
