Alison Wonderland: Awake

Words by Bianca O’Neill

A strong follow-up.

DJ wunderkind Alison Wonderland returns with her new album Awake, following the huge success of her debut album Run three years ago.

This time around Alex explores a more experimental space, preferring interesting listening over commerciality.

But that’s not to say there aren’t any commercial tracks on here. ‘Easy’ and ‘Church’ have seen solid airplay, as different as they are.

‘Cry’ should also see some spins, especially with that calypso flavour delivering the chorus.

There’s a lot of really interesting sound art on here too that proves her talent well. The album opens with a cello solo, which she plays herself, overlaid with Alex asking the audience, “is it good enough?”.

According to this reviewer, yeah, it is.
