Returning from a self-imposed musical exile following a triumphant run of early releases, haunted Swedish songwriter Alice Boman brings forth new single ‘Dreams’. A bleary-eyed, emotion-packed reflection on the dissolution of hope, it’s a track that’s strengthened by the silence it emerges from.
For the video Alice decided to head to Vårhallarna, an area of Sweden to which she has a strong personal connection. It was directed by Jeanne Lula Chauveau with art and creative direction by Jeanne Lula Chauveau and Aëla Labbé.
Penning her first EPs while sitting by her grandparents old piano, with nothing but a handheld voice recorder to hand, Alice’s first two releases – 2013’s Skisser EP and 2014’s EP II – were a document of her innermost emotions, pieced together in the sanctum of her teenage home.
“It will be so nice to share what I’ve been doing,” Alice says. “I’m a bit of a perfectionist, but the songs I love the most are far from perfect. I want my songs to feel alive – that’s the magic.”
