Alison Wonderland today releases her anthemic new single “Down The Line.” A song that glimmers with hope in the face of loneliness, the track opens with Alison alone on vocals, accompanied by a warm acoustic guitar, by the time it builds to a close, she’s joined by a multitude of voices, underscoring the comfort found through community. Listen to “Down The Line” HERE. The song was originally exclusive to the vinyl edition of Alison’s new album, Loner.
“We need the dark times in order to get to the light,” explains Alison Wonderland. “We need that experience to know that it’s going to be okay one day. The track is me acknowledging that I was alone during a difficult time but knew that I was going to get through it and be okay, down the line. We’re all going through a dark time right now, and sometimes we need to be reminded that it’s going to be okay. No matter what happens, we will be okay.”
The official video for the track follows the misadventures of a trio of motivational speakers – acolytes of a fictional “Down The Line” movement, helmed by Alison – as they try to inspire a lackluster crowd. View the clip, which was directed by Alison’s frequent collaborator, Prad Sen (Client Liaison, G Flip, DZ Deathrays, The Presets) HERE.

V Magazine said, “Loner serves as a testament to [Alison’s] strength. Painfully honest and beautifully crafted, the album takes us through her personal journey to triumph.” Consequence of Sound noted, “Never one to shy away from vulnerability, Wonderland has taken her self-reflective electronic pop to a new level with Loner.” “It’s simultaneously devastating and hopeful – always spellbinding and occasionally staggering,” marvelled the LA Weekly. Forbes observed, “Wonderland is an artist in the best sense of the word. Brave, compelling, and totally outspoken, and equally thoughtful and gracious.”
