ALICE BOMAN

plus guest

– Upstairs –

Tickets go on sale Friday at 9am

Alice Boman’s voice hits with the emotional force and haunting fragility of Nina Simone. See her live upstairs at Whelans on Friday the 6th of December. Tickets €15 go on sale tomorrow morning, September 26th at 9am from ticketmaster.

Timeless and direct, the Swedish singer released a wistful collection of songs on EP II in June 2014 via Adrian Recordings, forming a CD album together with the stunning debut EP, Skisser.

Hailing from Malmö, Sweden, the singer/songwriter first appeared when she released 2013’s Skisser via Adrian Recordings. Swedish for “sketches,” Skisser was just that – delicate home recordings from her bedroom Boman gracefully unleashed to the world, that were never meant to fall on any other ears but her own. Adrian Recordings were wrapping up after a busy summer and had no intention of doing an additional release, heard Skisser and claimed that time itself stopped, and decided to issue the EP on vinyl. The response was overwhelming, with whispers of her craft on The Line of Best Fit and The Wild Honey Pie, eventually growing so loud, that praise from the likes of Interview Magazine and The Guardian naturally followed.

Lead track and first single from the release, “What,” is a lo-fi fairy tale and fitting introduction to EP II. Much in the vein of Skisser, Boman’s penchant for creating beauty through simplicity is carried across to EP II. “My lyrics are quite simple and maybe don’t give room for a lot of interpretations, so maybe there is not even any need for descriptions,” she muses about the new release, which was recorded in a cabin in the Swedish woods – a fitting backdrop to the ethereal EP. “And anyway, I like it when you let the music and the lyrics speak for themselves.”
