It’s been about four years since Sweden’s Alice Boman first visited us for BTR Live Studio, and her hazy, sweet style is still as entrancing as ever.

Here, she shares a hauntingly beautiful live rendition of her recent single, which she played exclusively for us at Serious Business Music in Brooklyn.

IDLES is a lightning bolt shooting straight out of Bristol, England, and tearing through the mess of a world we’re all currently suffering through, guiding the masses with a grin and a fist while dancing and shouting and leading a charge for what’s honest and true.
