POP Montreal Live Video: Wake Island

wakeisland

The very first band we had in during our residency at Breakglass Studios for POP Montreal was Montreal-via-Beirut duo Wake Island. Comprised of Philippe Manasseh and Nadim Maghzal, the two grew up in war-torn Beirut before coming to Montreal where they ended up meeting in college and bonding over their common roots and music. After graduating, they knew music was their true calling and made it their life. With Phil on vocals and synth and Nadim on guitar and drum machine, they bring a raw electro/no-wave sound, influenced by Alan Vega/Suicide and techno with deeply personal lyrics. Their live performance reflects the pure joy creating music brings them. Enjoy!
