EDITORS’ NOTES

Australian singer, producer, and DJ Alison Wonderland got a taste of strobe-lit stardom behind the decks of Sydney's warehouse circuit, and there’s a party-all-night ethos pulsing throughout Run. Wonderland’s debut full-length is filled with chattering beats, frothy buildups, and bass-heavy swagger. But it’s the edgy, 11th-hour energy that makes Run so exhilarating; shortly after she lures us in with breathy melodies on tunes like “I Want U,” “Naked," and “Take It to Reality,” she blindsides us with a gritty blast of double-time clatter. When Run brings down the tempo with “U Don’t Know,” it's an ominous midtempo highlight that features a guest vocal from Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne.

TITLE TIME

About Alison Wonderland

With a sound as big as her name is punny, Alison Wonderland is a Sydney-based EDM producer and DJ who began her music career on the opposite side of the spectrum, as a classically trained cellist. She spent a few years DJ'ing before releasing her debut single, "Get Ready," in 2013; then in 2014 she signed with the EMI label and released the ironically titled Calm Down. The EP earned accolades from tastemakers like Annie Mac and Diplo, and it featured the hit single "I Want U." A year later she released her debut album, Run, which featured guest spots from Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips, Lido, and Slumberjack. The DJ celebrated the release with a series of launch parties at different strip bars dotted across Australia. Released in 2017, the single "Happy Place" revealed the first offering from Wonderland's follow-up album, Awake. An additional pair of 2018 singles, "Church" and "No," preceded the album's April release. ~ David Jeffries
