"Ojala is finally ready to make her world debut with next month's EP1."

The 405

"It starts off relatively laid-back, gently picking up momentum before Ojala piles on vocal layers for the massive, warped pop-chorus...the presence and charisma Ojala brings to the track is entirely her own"


"...Deliciousness...Mystifying... ...Oh my God... phenomenal... ...need that in my life..."

Hoxton Radio

"Developing a unique style, ... works on instinct, taking enormous chances with her work"

Clash Music

"Her ability to drive her voice between moody depths and haunting heights makes for a compelling sound"

Idol Magazine

"She crafts a wondrous future pop perspective that will only grow deeper as more people hear and absorb her music"

"Following the release of her stunning debut offering ‘EP1’ .... we had a chat with enigmatic London based .... singer/songwriter Leena Ojala, about her melancholic electronica set against her hauntingly alluring voice"

The Fame Magazine

"Still one of the best debut singles to come our way this year, newcomer Leena Ojala has debuted the video to accompany “Why”. It’s a striking piece that gives us our first glimpse at this exciting new artist."

The PopShock

"The release of EP1 a few months ago has sparked much interest and praise for Leena .... Something tells us you’ll be hearing a lot more about this talented lady over the next 12 months."

The Unsigned Guide

"While the video's narrative concerns a subplot about a teenage runaway, the black and white clips of Ojala are where the real action takes place. In fact there's more choreography on display above her eyes than in most pop videos’ entire length, with her two perfectly asymmetrical strips of hair expressing the song's desperate yearning perfectly."
