All Hell Breaking Loose HMLTD Interview Brooke McCord Photography Damien Fry

You might know London-based six-piece HMLTD as Happy Meal LTD—their former alias until Ronald McDonald’s legal department came calling—and if you’ve heard the name chances are you’ve witnessed their genre-defying glam-inspired music and campy aesthetic. The band’s made up of frontman Henry, guitarist Duke, drummer Achilleas, guitarist James, bassist Nico and keyboardist Zac, all in their early to mid-twenties. “We’re pan-European,” explains James. “Achilleas is Greek, we’ve got three Frenchmen from Paris, and Henry and I are from England.” None of the group are from London, but that’s where they crossed paths, bonding over a mutual sense of disenchantment. “We met at parties, or through mutual friends, we had similar interests and similar style,” recalls James. “We decided to start a band and things really went from there. London can also be a bit of a paradise for people who come from shit towns,” says James. “I’d never think of moving anywhere else.” 100

BANOFFEE

Backpack EASTPAK BUST REFLECTIVE LIGHT. All clothing BANOFFEE’S OWN.

THE FIERCELY INDEPENDENT PERFORMER WHO’S MELBOURNE’S SWEETEST EXPORT.

“SORRY! I SPILT porridge down me at breakfast!” The saccharinely-named Banoffee has arrived, bursting through the door with E-number energy and a happy-go-lucky demeanour. Melbourne-based Martha Brown, aka Banoffee, is the Australian mastermindcreating new wave electro-pop with smooth synths and syncopated beats. Brown’s influences aren’t exactly what you’d expect. Sure, she looks to her favourite, much-cited artists — Lauryn Hill and Gillian Welch — to harness their energy and as she puts it, “create a fierceness in my own, more melodic sense.” Equally, she looks to her everyday surroundings, finding narratives in mundanity — “whether it’s cups of coffee or electric blankets” — to inspire her deeply personal and evocative lyricism. Growing up as a 90s/00s girl on a diet of classic R&B, Banoffee found inspiration in the honesty that the artists she adored shared in their music. “It was all about having an instrumental that matched the emotions of the lyrics,” she reminisces. “I think that’s where R&B really resonates for me.”  That integrity channels its way into each lyric of Brown’s tracks, where she explores everything, from “internal relationships, between different parts of you” to her “own personal idea of feminism and what it means to be [making music] as a woman in the world today”. On June release “I’m Not Sorry”, Brown’s defiant refusal to be a wallflower, she asks, “How long is too long to live under your hate?”  “If I can communicate things that are important to me through my own music I feel satisfied,” Brown explains. “Empowering women is something that is very important to me.” Active in the Melbourne music community, Brown uses her platform as an active, touring musician, to involve women in her project, whether that’s supporting her fellow female musicians or getting dancers involved in her Australian shows and using their choreography to support the messages of her songs. “I think art is a really important medium to start conversations and keep communication going. A lot of communication has been lost through politics and through policy and through the media. Art is one form of communication that isn’t going anywhere.” Brown’s local Melbourne music scene is a major source of inspiration, partly because it’s so detached from any other major city in the world. “Limitations can really do a lot for creativity. There’s less effecting the scene there in terms of commercial music and popular music,” she says, pointing out that despite the internet and radio, she isn’t under the spell of commercial, popular music. Between performing her tracks solo in her stripped back live performance and taking herself on a Europe tour without a manager, Brown is doing things her way. “I like the idea that this year, I’m looking at the things that people told me I couldn’t do and proving them wrong,” she exhales contently. Never before has sticking it to the man seemed so effortlessly badass.

Wonderland Magazine Contributing Fashion Editor CONTRIBUTORS

2016’S NEARLY OVER. It’s lit. In fact, it’s a lituation (a situation that is lit). We like to think we’re pretty moditional (modern, non-traditional) here at Wonderland, so we thought we’d fill the pages of this issue with words taken from the fictionary (words that aren’t yet in the dictionary) before they make it into your everyday vernacular in 2017. Don’t worry, we’ve included their definitions so you can serve them up with sassitude (a sassy demeanour). We asked our fantasmarific (fantastically terrific) contributors to share the new words that they think are siq (extremely awesome, outstandingly or amazingly good or impressive, sick) with us for our glossary.

SIMON RASMUSSEN

My favourite word of 2016 is: Underboob Can you use it in a sentence? In an ideal situation, a hottie will wear an underboob shirt (quote stolen from the internet).

LASSE DEARMAN

My favourite word of 2016 is: Drittsekk. Can you use it in a sentence? It’s Norwegian, I’m not sure exactly what it means, but I think it’s something like asshole… Anyone who has seen SKAM, a Norwegian teenage TV show (one of the best TV shows this year) will understand the reference.

HALI CHRISTOU

My favourite word of 2016 is: Ceebs, short for CBF, short for “can’t be fucked” Can you use it in a sentence? “Will someone please book me an Uber? I ceebs.”

PAULINA OTYLIE SURYS

My favourite word of 2016 is: Aporia Can you use it in a sentence? Aporia causes uncertainty and its main objective is to provide the audience a chance to analyse and judge the situation.

JOSH HOMER

My favourite word of 2016 is: Re-up Can you use it in a sentence? 2016 has been the year of the re-up, from Craig David to gothic fonts

LUKE FARLEY

My favourite word of 2016is: Dabbing. Can you use it in a sentence? …I’m still baffled.

FIONA DUNCAN

My favourite word of 2016 is: Noosphere Can you use it in a sentence? "Homesteading the Noosphere," is a slogan LA-based artist Sonya Sombreuil printed on one of her Cometees garments. Homestead is also good, it means a lifestyle of self-sufficiency, and noosphere: the sphere of human thought. Free your mind and the rest will follow.
