Album Review: Alice Boman - EP II

CGO095AliceBoman.inddEP II takes listeners on a charming carousel ride of perpetual wonder across a vibrant landscape of youthful enchantment. Boman’s delightfully repetitive nature beats the odds against bland tiresomeness and rhythmic ineptitude. Perhaps because such simplistic lyrics blend with captivating vocals that effortlessly penetrate mind, body and soul. Picture static, black-and-white melodies interspersed with electrifying bursts of vivid color and mystique on songs like “Lead Me.” Tender folk mixed with emotive timbre gives way to harmonious, fairytale-esque splendor throughout. – Danica Bellini
