Alison Wonderland gets vulnerable on open surprise single, Peace

It arrives exactly one year since her 2018 album, Awake.

Exactly one year ago this week saw the arrival of Alison Wonderland's triumphant second album Awake, and with it, the arrival of a new side of the Australian-raised, now-internationally-dominating musician, more bent on songwriting, storytelling and genre versatility - a far cry from the hectic, bass-driven bangers that largely dominated her early days as a producer making waves in the Sydney bass circuit. It was "a 14-track LP that shows her clear evolution as an artist, one that's more comfortable with her own voice and her own capabilities," as we said on its release last year when we interviewed her, "and while it features artists like Trippe Redd, Chief Keef (!) and our own Slumberjack, the album really serves as a showcase for Alison Wonderland to flex her own production skills and perhaps more tellingly, songwriting chops, in the process blending elements of pop, trap, future-bass and electronica as smoothly as those party DJ sets in years gone by."

Today, marks the arrival of something new, with Alison Wonderland teasing new sounds and directions as she celebrates one year since Awake with Peace. On its most obvious level, Peace is a single built more-so on hooks and pop mannerisms, with the clanging productions and rattling breakdowns of her past work reduced to a thick, but rather stripped-back sound that lets Alison's vocal flourish over the top. However, when you dive a little deeper, you can tell that Peace is a single full of pain and consequently vulnerability, with Alison opening up as her vocals sway above the twisting production. "I wrote Peace to help me find my own closure in something," she tweeted with the song's somewhat surprise arrival. "I don’t feel at peace right now. In fact, I still feel kinda broken. No one gave me closure; I have to do it on my own."
