"When you see stories about Alice Boman, a singer-songwriter from Malmö, Sweden, you'll almost always read that she never intended to release the five songs on her 2013 debut EP, Skisser. Hearing them in all their quiet power and loveliness, you can understand why this fact is so hard for people to get over. If the world never knew about Alice or her music, we would all truly and sadly be missing out. On June 3, she releases a new collection of songs on EP II, including 'Over.'" --Rookie Mag

"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." -- Clash

Fielded
Fielded is the stage name of Lindsay A. Powell, a vocalist, songwriter and composer currently based out of Brooklyn, NY. Powell works at creating a genre-less instrumental backdrop for the movement of her voice – a penetrating and sensual tool in which she explores fearlessly and innovatively. She refers to her sound as 'post-apocalyptic pop', a title that is all too fitting as it seems as though her songs have been written as part of some future film laced with battle cries, lovemaking and outer limit abductions. When writing, Powell says that each song begins with a vocal line and from there she constructs an entire movement complete with drums, bass, choral backings and the occasional saxophone solo. Intense and riveting, we pulse through the many dimensions of her songs searching for the history we never knew and the future we never thought we wanted.

Fielded has just finished Ninety Thirty Thirty, her full-length follow-up to 2009's Terrageist. She is currently touring and writing for her upcoming releases.
