Alice Boman's new track "Over" starts off with a line which encapsulates the feeling I get when I listen to her exquisite music; "You know I need the darkness, just as much I as I need the light". A few words that bring together her minimal beats and longing piano chords, part ghostly, haunting mood and crystalline beauty thanks to Alice's tender, devastating vocal delivery. It's sure to touch you on the inside.
As I mentioned last week, Alice plays The Great Escape this forthcoming weekend and she also has a show with the wonderful Jenny Hval on June 3rd (details). The same day sees her EP II released via Happy Death, something that you can pre-order now at Rough Trade.
