Alana Wilkinson - Closer

Alana Wilkinson - Closer
Equal parts vulnerable folk singer and vitriolic pop-punk poet Melbourne artist Alana Wilkinson is turning heads with a string of high profile shows showcasing her wit humour and insightful social commentary.

Combining delicate melodies with disarmingly insightful vignettes about the human condition, Wilkinson is a smiling assassin. Her songs skewer ex-lovers would-be suitors, ridiculous social norms and the absurd challenges of suburban life in a way that leaves audiences feeling that they have stumbled across a particularly poignant and often hilarious diary.

This past year has seen Wilkinson to be the support of choice for such artists as The Pierce Brothers, Bob Evans, Eddi Reader and Sarah McLeod as well as playing at festivals such as Nannup, Blue Mountains and Queenscliff.

Equally at home in the intimate confines of a house concert or in the expansive surrounds of a festival Wilkinson engages audiences with stories and songs that seep into the consciousness.

She's been compared to iconic artists such as Billy Bragg Jonathon Richman and Patti Smith and Australian success stories like Courtney Barnett, Kate Miller Heidke and Emma Louise and even to the idiosyncratic Tim Minchin. 2019 will see Alana release a six track EP produced by Hayden Calnin.

About this track...

‘Closer’ is about navigating the grey area of falling in love. That strange little two-person bubble of big, giddy feeling that no one wants to talk about in case it blows the party candle out. This is my interpretation of how it feels to be in this space – full of clumsy oversharing, skippy steps and nervy wee’s.
