Xeno & Oaklander are French/Norwegian Liz Weldelbo and Maryland’s Sean McBride, who have been writing and recording music as a duo since 2004. Based in Brooklyn, McBride’s mono-vocal a la Ian Curtis and Weldelbo’s high pitched voice are pitted against a backdrop of analogue synthesisers, nostalgically paying homage to 1980’s minimal wave. The 17th of October marks the release of their third album, Sets & Lights, preceded by the single of the same name scheduled for release on 20th September.

Xeno & Oaklander have toured Europe and the West Coast extensively and are set to join John Foxx and The Maths for two gigs next month including a show at London’s XOYO on 27th October.

Sets & Lights is out on 17th October on Wierd Records.
