Athena Xeno & Oaklander Hypnos As a musical act, Xeno & Oaklander (Sean McBride and Liz Wendelbo) conflate a rich love of analog synths, melody, and mythology with eloquent nuance and a nod to the heritage they draw from. While that construct is the duo’s immediate kiss and crush, there’s a deeper importance to their collaboration which began in 2004. On their latest album Hypnos and first for the Dais imprint, the duo leveraged the talents of visual artist and live sound engineer Egan Frantz to mix the album. It’s a touch that adds both punch and balance, allowing their inherent conceptual voices to converge into a collage with defined edges and warm, synapses of frequency and beat.
Synth-pop duo Xeno and Oaklander, aka Sean McBride and Liz Wendelbo, will debut on Dais Records with a new album. Hypnos follows their 2016 release on Ghostly International, Topiary. This has brought dense harmonies and a more complex counterpoint to the composition. Listen to the first single, ‘Angélique’, now. Wendelbo explains that the vocals on the album were influenced by the ’60s French pop singer Françoise Hardy and the ’80s new wave icon Tina Weymouth
