Sydney-born, L.A.-based singer-songwriter, producer and DJ Alison Wonderland has unveiled her new single, “Church,” and the accompanying music video. The soaring synth-pop track is from her forthcoming album, Awake, which will be released by Astralwerks later this year.
The official video for “church,” shot in Los Angeles and directed by Bo Mirosseni (Disclosure, Mac Miller), depicts an ethereal Wonderland and a young gospel choir against a church backdrop, bringing the hypnotic track to life. Underneath its vibrant pop pulse, “Church” is the sound of Wonderland emerging from her own darkness. In her most revealing lyrics to date, she shares her personal struggles with difficult relationships, anxiety and self-doubt. The song, she explains, is about “realizing your self-worth, when the person you’re with doesn’t.”
