Alison Wonderland with Elohim at Electric Factory
Friday, September 22nd, 2017
◊ Alison Wonderland ◊
2015 saw her US live show debut at Coachella, her debut album Run, debuting at #1 on the US Electronic Billboard charts, a US tour taking in stops in NYC, Miami and Chicago with EDC Las Vegas, Lollapalooza, European tour and a HUGE sold out Australian Warehouse tour, 2016 is looking very bright for Alison Wonderland.
The way you hear her tell it, Alison Wonderland has wanted to name her first album Run since before she knew how to play an instrument. It’s something that she’s carried with her over a diverse career spanning multiple projects, all of which have crystallised in a record that’s a twisted looking glass into the soul of one of Australia’s most promising musician/producers.
Welcome to the contradictory world of Alison Wonderland; an Australian artist who has written an album during her time in Los Angeles, a public personality who privately obsesses over her music with near-maniacal intensity; an electronic producer who is equally proud of her pop songs and her festival bangers.
She’s a chemical performer who has played cello in orchestras, rocked the bass in indie bands and graced turntables in front of thousands. From Stereosonic to Splendour and Coachella, not to mention a killer ‘Diplo and Friends’ BBC radio mix and a national run of secret warehouse shows that sold out in hours, Alison Wonderland has probably racked up more air miles in the last 18 months than hours of sleep.
Thanks to the non-stop rotation of her breakout hit ‘I Want U’, which topped Hypemachine and its EP Calm Down, which garnered millions of plays on Soundcloud, Wonderland has become known not only as a crowd-?pleaser, but also for her ability to craft great songs. ‘The way to be a good producer is about using your ears,’ says Wonderland. ‘If you just did what textbooks said, nothing new would ever happen.’
◊ Elohim ◊
Los Angeles artist Elohim and her new single «Sensations» is the lead track off her self-titled debut EP. The EP is an engrossing experience showcasing Elohim's unique audio/visual artistry and will be released on limited edition CD and gatefold 12" vinyl. A hard-hitting ode to sex, love, and vulnerability, «Sensations» finds Elohim at her strongest yet finding a synth-driven sweet spot paving a path all her own in forward-thinking pop. Since her live debut last year, Elohim has played CMJ 2015, co-headlined an LA residency alongside The Big Pink, and supported Baio (Vampire Weekend) on a run of U.S. west coast dates. She also played London's 'New Shapes' tastemaker show, who called it «One of the best UK debuts we've ever seen.» A classically-trained pianist and skilled songwriter, Elohim first turned heads last year with the one-two punch success of debut singles «She Talks Too Much» and «Xanax,» here on B3SCI Records. «She Talks Too Much» has seen 1MM+ Spotify streams and Sirius XM Alt Nation support while «Xanax» has received frequent spins by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio and was coupled with a stirring official video.
