“EASY,” ALISON WONDERLAND’S NEW VIDEO, IS OUT NOW
Following her powerful performance at sunny Coachella, Alison Wonderland unveils her new video, “Easy,” which finds her dancing her way through a storm, stalked by an unrelenting rain cloud that even follows her indoors. Wonderland came up with the concept for the video after connecting with a scene from the 1998 film, The Truman Show.
“When I’m not happy, it feels like there is constant dark raincloud over my head and it seems like everyone else is in the sunshine. It’s easy to feel isolated and alone,” explains Wonderland. “I wrote ‘Easy’ on a day I felt like this. The description in the chorus is very literal. I woke up in bed too embarrassed to tell the guy next to me that I was sad for no reason, so I went to the bathroom to cry secretly because I was too scared to be honest at the time.”
The clip, which was shot in Los Angeles, was directed by Bo Mirhosseni (Disclosure, Mac Miller), who helmed the video for “Church,” the first single from her new album, AWAKE. Like Wonderland’s self-titled 2015 debut album, AWAKE entered Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 1. In the lead up to its release, tracks from the new album racked up over 20 million combined streams.
Wonderland was the highest billed female DJ in Coachella’s history. Run The Trap observed, “Alison Wonderland came ready to drop an unforgettable Coachella set…Performing hits from her new album Awake, Alison Wonderland also brought out Trippie Redd to perform ‘High,’ making her Coachella set one of the most high-key of the night.” Dancing Astronaut said, “Alison Wonderland took Coachella by Storm” while EDM Sauce predicted her set “will be talked about for years to come.” Billboard ranked her performance among the Top 5 Dance Highlights at Coachella and noted, “Wonderland came to the table with nothing but a home run on the menu. The Australian artist started her set with an emotional cello performance that bridged the gap between her childhood musical ambitions and her modern electronic career.”
She will also perform at Bonnaroo, Spring Awakening, Greatest Day Ever and Belgium’s Tomorrowland. Wonderland’s North American headline tour will kick off on August 3 at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, CO. See below for itinerary. Every online ticket purchase for the summer run comes with one digital download of Awake. For additional details, visit alisonwonderland.com.
Wonderland brought her writing and producing skills to each of AWAKE’s 14 tracks and was joined in the studio by a red-hot roster of collaborators, including Joel Little (Lorde), Illangelo (The Weeknd), Party Favor (Mad Decent) and long-time friend Lido (who also worked on Run). The FADER and Interview Magazine both recently singled out the track “Dreamy Dragon” Ft. Chief Keef as songs readers should check out. “High” featuring Trippie Redd topped Elle’s list of the “Best Songs to Listen to in April” and Complex hailed it among the “Best New Music.” Billboard said, “[‘Church’ is] triumphant with a big, booming chorus and a beat that bounces happily in the face of anyone who wants to tear you down.”
