From Malmö, Sweden, singer and songwriter Alice Boman has a timeless, emotionally powerful and beautiful voice. For Boman though, the beauty is a quiet one, sometimes stark, often fragile but with an immediate emotional impact. Boman recently released EP II via The Control Group. In September she’ll play a handful of shows in the States, with a stop in Philly at Boot & Saddle on Thursday, September 11th.
Below, listen to Boman’s cover of the War On Drugs’ “Red Eyes.” She recorded this for Sweden National Radio on April 30th during a live broadcast, and turns War On Drugs’ driving rock song into a tender piano based ballad.
