Alice Boman - EP II, June 2nd 2014
Alice Boman’s voice hits with the emotional force and haunting fragility of Nina Simone. Timeless and direct, the Scandinavian singer returns with a wistful collection of songs on EP II, set to be released on June 2nd via Happy Death.
Hailing from Malmö, Sweden, the singer/songwriter first appeared when she released 2013’s Skisser. Swedish for “sketches,” Skisser was just that - delicate home recordings from her bedroom Boman gracefully unleashed to the world.
Lead track and first single from the release, “What,” is a lo-fi fairy tale and fitting introduction to EP II. Much in the vein of Skisser, Boman’s penchant for creating beauty through simplicity is carried across to EP II. “My lyrics are quite simple and maybe don’t give room for a lot of interpretations, so maybe there is not even any need for descriptions,” she muses about the new release, which was recorded in a cabin in the Swedish woods - a fitting backdrop to the ethereal EP. “And anyway, I like it when you let the music and the lyrics speak for themselves.”

Ejecta - Dominae, December 9th 2013
Ejecta – aka Joel Ford (Airbird, Tigercity & Ford & Lopatin) and Leanne Macomber (Neon Indian, Fight Bite) – will be releasing their flawless, dance-ready debut LP Dominae on December 9th via Happy Death.
Fiery-headed, silver-voiced seraph Leanne provides theatrical vocals at the songwriting helm while Joel brings dynamic drum programming and heady beats. It’s a retrofuturist sound poised on buildups and climaxes, one which pays its dues to the 80s and one which parks up at the elysian fields of electronic pop.
Unrequited love, failed attempts at adulthood and the death of her closest friend are among the autobiographical concepts explored by the persona of Ejecta, who Leanne calls a timeless, classless, everywoman.
