On 2013's Skisser EP Alice Boman introduced herself as someone to take seriously, armed with a set of bedroom recordings, plaintive piano chords and a beautifully hushed voice she produced one the most beautiful moments of last year with "Waiting". She returned this week with news of her next EP (handily entitled EP II) and the good news is simple for those who fell under her spell (and newcomers too), "What" offers an equally beautiful experience.
The track immediately seduces, a stark and fragile piano-led ballad full of haunting, echoey atmosphere and Alice's sweetly-hushed vocals, the result is an intimate, bare-boned listen capable of bringing you close to tears.
EP II is released June 3rd via Happy Death and there's good news for fellow gig goers too as Alice was announced amongst the latest additions to The Great Escape festival line-up in May. She's on my list of must-sees.
