Wake Island is an electronic duo formed by Lebanese musicians Philippe Manasseh and Nadim Maghzal and based in Montreal and New York City. The band fearlessly blends electronic dance music with indie rock songwriting to create a positive, uplifting experience. Their new album, OUT, was mostly self-recorded in isolated cabins across the Quebec Eastern Townships and mixed at Montreal’s Breakglass Studios with Jace Lasek (Suuns, Wolf Parade). Through this beautiful and eclectic collection of songs, the band encourage us to stay positive and to open up to the world around us. OUT is now available through Oh Hi, an artist collective they co-founded in Montreal. Their live show echoes bands like Caribou, Moderat and Beach House and is sure to elevate your spirit and make you dance.
