    Our feature series Track by Track gives artists a platform to reveal the stories and details behind each song on their latest album. Today, Alison Wonderland explores her new LP, Loner.


    Australian DJ and singer-songwriter Alison Wonderland has returned with Loner, her first full-length project since 2018’s Awake.

    Never one to shy away from vulnerability, Wonderland has taken her self-reflective electronic pop to a new level with Loner. Like everyone else, the pandemic utterly disrupted Wonderland’s life. A DJ on the rise both in Australia and abroad, she was ripped from the world of live dance shows and thrown into a frozen, solitary couple of years.

    With more time to think than ever before, Wonderland revisited her past projects. “I realized that I have always seen myself as the victim of my story,” she reveals in a press statement. “This time, something shifted in me, and I decided that I didn’t want to be the victim anymore. Instead, whatever I wrote from here would empower me, and help me find strength in this loneliness.”

    Still intensely emotional, the songs on Loner take a stubbornly optimistic viewpoint. From the gratitude of “New Day” to the validation of the title track, Wonderland spends the album attempting to translate her active self-love to the listener. “I knew that being this honest and speaking from the heart would really speak to people,” she tells Consequence.
