Sleep Deprived Music Review: Alice Boman

Alice Boman of Sweden released her debut album, Dream On, a few days ago. So take whatever money you have left in your post-holiday budget and support Boman in some way – buy her album, go see her live, snag the merch.

Boman’s music on the album feels ethereal and hushed – like Boman is sharing secrets with someone she trusts. It’s quiet yet powerful.

“I took instruments and recording equipment to a house in the countryside of Sweden for a few weeks to get away from everything,” Boman says. “To just focus on writing and playing. No distractions. Sometimes you need that distance to get into a flow.” 

 It’s a bit of electronic pop combined with folk. My favorite songs on the album are “Don’t Forget about Me” and “Wish We Had More Time.”

Boman doesn’t remind me of any musical artist in particular. I read that she wrote the music while listening to Portishead. If you have heard Portishead, you’ll hear their influence on this album.

I would like to listen to this album at a beach house that not in a tourist area. Maybe Maine . . .
