Swedish songwriter Alice Boman recently released a limited edition 7″ of her single “Dreams”. Boman’s first release in three years, the physical copy is comprised of “Dreams” on one side, and an instrumental version of the single unavailable anywhere else on the B side.
“Dreams” lightly dances along, with melancholic lyrics and an almost eerie undertone to the vocals. Poignant in its disposition, Boman’s lyrics beg the question “Where do dreams begin?” repeatedly, opening up space for its listener to ponder. Admits Boman of the track:
I wrote “Dreams” more than 2 years ago and I can’t recall exactly what was in my mind at the time. But I do remember being in the studio later on recording the song. I had just gotten a disappointing text message and I was sad and upset, and then I had to record vocals. And I remember that it hit me, when singing the song, that although I wrote it at another time it captured just how I felt in that moment too. And it comforted me somehow, that that’s how it is. Everything is constantly changing. But some things always feels the same. Heartache is never easy. And in those moments it’s important to find something to hold on to. To keep on dreaming.
