Following her powerful performance at sunny Coachella, Alison Wonderland unveils her new video, “Easy,” which finds her dancing her way through a storm, stalked by an unrelenting rain cloud that even follows her indoors. Wonderland came up with the concept for the video after connecting with a scene from the 1998 film, The Truman Show.
“When I’m not happy, it feels like there is constant dark raincloud over my head and it seems like everyone else is in the sunshine. It’s easy to feel isolated and alone,” explains Wonderland. “I wrote ‘Easy’ on a day I felt like this. The description in the chorus is very literal. I woke up in bed too embarrassed to tell the guy next to me that I was sad for no reason, so I went to the bathroom to cry secretly because I was too scared to be honest at the time.”
The clip, which was shot in Los Angeles, was directed by Bo Mirhosseni (Disclosure, Mac Miller), who helmed the video for “Church,” the first single from her new album, AWAKE. Like Wonderland’s self-titled 2015 debut album, AWAKE entered Billboard‘s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 1. In the lead up to its release, tracks from the new album racked up over 20 million combined streams.
