Free Show: Pop Montréal & Torstraßen Festival Present Wake Island + L.A. Foster


Veteranenstraße 21 10119 Berlin Germany

Building on the success of last year's collaboration, POP Montreal and Torstraßen Festival have teamed up again, this time to bring you a free show featuring 2 Pop curated acts: Wake Island and L.A. Foster.

TSF affilaited artists Better Person and Lil' Tuts will DJ before, between and after the live stuff.

L.A. Foster:

After growing up in Edmonton, Foster has spent the past ten years living in Buenos Aires and Montreal. Playing with these geographical contrasts, Foster's premiere release is a mix of emotion ranging from southern heat to gritty cold-weather-break-ups. Blending cumbia, reggaeton, and house; her mix of samples, melodic hooks and cutting vocals provides the perfect setting for a melancholic dance party.

Wake Island:

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 comes out on April 29th 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.

Wake Island est un duo d'électro formé par Nadim Maghzal et Philippe Manasseh, deux musiciens libanais installés à Montréal et New York. Ils infusent une sensibilité rock à une musique foncièrement électronique et dansante, créant une atmosphère entrainante et positive. Leur nouvel album OUT a été enregistré par le groupe dans plusieurs chalets dans les Cantons de l'Est du Québec et mixé par Jace Lasek (Sunns, Wolf Parade) au studio Breakglass à Montréal. À travers cette collection éclectique de chansons, le groupe nous invite à rester optimistes et à nous ouvrir au monde. OUT sortira le 29 avril via l'étiquette Oh Hi, un collectif d'artistes montréalais qu'ils ont cofondé. Sur scène, le groupe rappelle l'énergie de Caribou et Moderat et la sensibilité de Beach House.
