Take a deep breath, in black & white. Alice Boman's fragile singing, mixed with ethereal images from the Swedish countryside, make for a small laptop vacation, in her new video for the song "Be Mine."
Alice Boman - Be Mine (Official video)
Filmmaker Anders Weberg, know for his "slow cinema" films with running times of literally hundreds of hours, directed the video. Unlike his more elaborate projects, he used a cellphone to shoot, with a run time under three-and-a-half minutes.
Alice Boman is also bit of a minimalist, making spare lo fidelity music. "Be Mine" first appeared on her EP II, which came out earlier this year. Boman is also about to come to the U.S. for a tour, and I know I'll make a trip to my local club to hear her remarkable voice.
