Singer/songwriter Alice Boman crafts gentle, melancholic atmospheres with lo-fi aesthetics. She began releasing music in 2013, making her full-length debut with the reverb-washed Dream On in 2020.
A native of Malmö, Sweden, Boman never intended for her first set of demos to see wide release. After she sent them off to a studio to be re-recorded professionally, a staff member sent them to Adrian Recordings, which was granted permission to issue them as the EP Skisser in 2013. Boman followed her debut with EP II in 2014. Aside from the release of the track “Dreams” in 2017, she proceeded relatively quietly, occasionally appearing on television soundtracks like 13 Reasons Why and Suits while she worked on her first album. The fruits of her efforts, Dream On, was issued by Play It Again Sam in early 2020.
“It’s a powerful feeling when you’re in that world and you lose track of time,” says Alice Boman of the deeply hypnotic state she entered when making her mesmerising and long-awaited debut album, Dream On. This transfixed state is one that she also seamlessly plunges her listeners into. 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.
