The profound sense of quietness that can be heard in Alice Boman‘s music stems from its simple roots. Initially a project that started at home when she was a teenager, the songs she was making were just “sketches.” Yet as soon as other people heard them, it was clear that there was so much more to her talents than simple home tinkering. Two EPs followed, 2013’s Skisser and 2014’s EP II, as did a wave of critical acclaim and an array of TV placements for her music on shows such as Transparent, Wanderlust, and 13 Reasons Why. With her new reach, the Swedish songwriter captivated listeners one-by-one. A period of reflection and concentration on songwriting followed, as did a run of stirring one-off singles made with producer Fabian Prynn: Heartbeat, Dreams and End of Time.
Having returned this summer with new single This Is Where It Ends, Swedish songwriter Alice Boman has announced her mesmerising and long-awaited debut album Dream On (due for release released 17th January via new label, Play It Again Sam). Her deeply textural, atmospheric and immersive sounds – coupled with her fragile yet engulfing and ethereal vocals – create something of a vortex that listeners are sucked in by. A world where ambient, dream pop and folk merge into a unique new form. Following two mesmerising sold out performances at St Pancras Old Church in 2018, Alice Boman returns for a special show at Union Chapel.
