If you’re suffering from a case of post-fun-weekend Monday depression, you may want to refrain from pressing the play button on Alice Boman’s latest track ‘What’ until Wednesday. Or you could just rebel against our advice and hit play now, because Alice’s heartfelt lo-fi pop sounds are most certainly not to be overlooked.
Following her first EP recorded in her bedroom, which was never initially intended to be for public release, “What” is the lead track from the Swedish singer’s second EP titled ‘II”. A powerful and emotional offering both dreamy and ethereal, the tracks on the EP mirror the fact that the EP was recorded in a log cabin in Swedish woodlands. Whilst this memo conjures memories of Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Ago debut album recorded in the woodlands of Wisconsin, Alice’s voice rivals the smooth and soothing tones of Lana Del Ray.
Her fresh tender, ethereal sounds make quite the statement intertwining music and emotion in a music climate which is sometimes lacking in this. We eagerly anticipate Alice’s next move.
