NEW MUSIC: ALICE WONDERLAND | FEAR OF DYING
Australian DJ Alison Wonderland released her first single of the year with “Fear Of Dying” and pairs it with a music video that confronts her past. After releasing tracks like “Bad Things,” “Anything,” and “W.W.C.B.D.” in 2020, last year was pretty quiet on the release front for Alison Wonderland. While she got back to playing festivals like Beyond Wonderland, Austin City Limits, and Decadence AZ, it wasn’t until the end of 2021 that some fresh beats from the Aussie artist surfaced. Riding the wave of “Fuck U Love U” into the new year. “Fear Of Dying” sees Alison Wonderland look to her internal struggles with anxiety to create the gripping lyrics found within its runtime. The emotions that run through your mind when you’re faced with the reality of losing someone close to you permeate this tune and are only bolstered by the impressive sound design that she offers up as well. The music video, one of the most gripping of her career, takes a dark turn at its coda when she is kidnapped—by herself. Here Wonderland is as captivating as haunting, twisting the knife into her dualities. The Australian powerhouse singer-songwriter and producer has not yet announced the release date of her upcoming third album, which will be her first since 2018's "Awake."
