On Rotation: Alice Boman


I binge-watched the second season of Amazon series Transparent last weekend and all this week I’ve been going back through to watch different scenes that have stuck with me. One of those features a song I haven’t been able to stop listening to called “Waiting” by Swedish singer/songwriter Alice Boman.

The song perfectly captures the deeply emotional and melancholy feel of the second season of the show about a family adjusting to life with an out transgender parent. If you haven’t seen the show yet, it might be better experienced for the first time as I did while watching Maura (Jeffrey Tambor) leaving a feminist festival in the woods she learns is hostile toward transgender women.
