Alice Boman’s Waiting is slow, stripped back, sparkling and unbearably intimate. These are recordings so close that listeners hear everything from the breath of the vocals, the finger strokes on the keys and their reverberating echoes through the wood of the piano.
The track is the first single from debut EP Skisser (Sketches) released on Adrian Recordings in Scandinavia this May. The emerging melodic folk artist from Malmo, Sweden, writes simple melodies that twist their arms around you; her sound is an understated drama that reflects the beauty, love and hope found in the depths of sadness and experience. Waiting is a perfect example of sound’s near magical ability to hone in on the knife edge of weighty, cut to the bone emotion.
