Australian producer Alison Wonderland has released a surreal music video for her first solo song of the year, “Bad Things.”
Alison Wonderland explained in a press release that “Bad Things” is a deeply personal song about “confronting your demons and dealing with them.” The accompanying music video presents a dark, unnerving vision of a dreamlike world in which Alison Wonderland lies on a bed in a field of purple flowers before falling through a mirror—or a looking glass, if you will, in an unmissable Alice in Wonderland reference. “Don’t fall in love with the bad things, remind me why I am still alive,” she sings over futuristic trap beats and fuzzy synths.
The producer’s previous release, a cheeky phem collaboration “WWCBD” (short for “What Would Carole Baskin Do?”) came in April as the world was watching Netflix’s Tiger King in lockdown. Before that, Wonderland featured on “Bummed” by Chet Porter.
This new track serves as the first taste of Alison Wonderland’s third LP set for release in 2021, her first since 2018’s Awake. Watch the music video for “Bad Things” directed by Peter Don:
