Heartbreakingly simple songwriting...
Alice Bowman

Sometimes the lightest punches carry the most force.

Take Alice Boman. The Swedish songwriter's voice rarely rises beyond a whisper, and her lyrics are simple, emotionally direct.

But the results are devastating. 'EP II' will be released on June 2nd, with Boman recording the Swedish woods outside her home in Malmo.

"My lyrics are quite simple and maybe don't give room for a lot of interpretations, so maybe there is not even any need for descriptions" she muses. "And anyway, I like it when you let the music and the lyrics speak for themselves."

Stripped from the new EP, 'Over' is a delicately etched digital hymn. The lo-fi video matches the directness of her approach - check it out below.

'EP II' will be released on June 2nd (pre-order link).

Alice Boman has confirmed the following UK shows:

23 Manchester Dot To Dot Festival
24 Bristol Dot To Dot Festival
25 Nottingham Dot To Dot Festival

3 London Sebright Arms

15 Green Man Festival
29-31 End Of The Road
