Xeno & Oaklander return with a new single, Magic of the Manifold, just after their brilliant performance in NYC at TV Eye and ahead of their European tour next week.

The synth pop / minimal electronics duo of Liz Wendelbo and Sean McBride (of Martial Canterel), Xeno & Oaklander are known for their mastery of clever song craft, dynamic sound design, and expansive world building.  They are staples of Brooklyn, NY’s analog synth community, helping drive the revival of dark dance and synth wave in the U.S.

Magic of the Manifold marks their first new music since 2021’s album ‘Vi/deo,’ and is moody, driving dance pop— a duet that feels equally at home in the caverns of cyberspace or an underground night club. Speaking on the single, they offer: “In ‘Magic of the Manifold,’ we created hard hitting drums set against romantic vocals and analog synth harmonies: we muse over the enchantment of a fictitious Mercury cavern where fumes and steam alter the mind and spark the imagination.”

Listen to Magic of the Manifold here or via YouTube below.

Magic of the Manifold arrives ahead of the duo’s Spring 2024 tour of Europe, and gives a taste of new music on the horizon.
