The Private World of Paradise

Off of the strength of a single EP, Wake Owl nabbed a Breakthrough Artist Juno nomination – few could resist the instant accessibility of Wild Country. Masterminds Colyn Cameron and Aiden Briscall had no choice but to follow it up with an ambitious full-length. The Private World of Paradise is exactly what the EP suggested this band could be but pushed even further; blends of folk, string flourishes, sonic experimentation (within a classic pop lens), and a decidedly retro sheen. The hook though is the killer songwriting – even if the palette hadn’t been expanded, this material would hold up stripped bare. Simply, Paradise is a must listen for lovers of indie pop.

The band is in the middle of a cross-country tour, with the remaining Canadian dates limited to the West Coast. Edmonton to Nanaimo, Mar 7-15, with multiple stops in between. Details here
