Axel Boman: Hello

An emo anthem #PrivateJam, the latest Arcade Fire video from Spike Jonze and more in this week's music recap

After remixing for the likes of house heavyweights John Talabot and playing sets at London’s Red Bull Music Academy, Stockholm’s Axel Boman is releasing his highly anticipated full-length release Family Vacation on Monday, 11 November. His first single “Hello” dropped this week to praise from critics and fans alike. The eight-minute chilled out house track is less sweaty dance floor EDM and more like Sunday morning (very early morning) loft house jazz. Combining elements of world music with carefully picked vocal samples over a steady bass line, Boman’s ability to span the breadth of the genre is evident and his potential is promising to say the least.
