And yet again, it’s a Swedish singer that has made me sit up and take notice. This week, it’s Alice Boman, a singer songwriter from Malmö, Sweden, whose song ‘Waiting‘ was featured on Transparent on Friday night — (Season 2, Episode 9 — “Man on the Land“).
In fact, ‘Waiting‘ was featured twice during the episode. Once right before the end and then, again, with the Pal remix version over the end credits themselves.
No surprise really, as it is a stunningly gorgeous song. So simple, so soft and yet so powerful.
And ‘Waiting‘ is from a very special album. Alice Boman’s debut EP Skisser (Sketches), which was recorded in her cabin in the middle of the Swedish woods somewhere, and only had 300 vinyl copies made of it. That EP got so much attention that Boman started to get attention from news media all over Europe, as well as interest from music supervisors on various TV shows.
Listen to Alice Boman’s ‘Waiting‘ in the video below. Captivating, isn’t it?
