Wake Island: It Takes Time

Wake Island are a prog-rock band from Montreal. They will release their second full-length in February 2013. The It Takes Time EP serves as a taster. The tracks were produced and mixed by Jace Lasek (Besnard Lakes, Wolf Parade, Suuns).

With two members from Lebanon, a Canadian and US citizen, you'd expect a grab bag of styles. However, the predominant feel of the EP is British. They go for the big sound that was championed by bands like Suede and The Jesus and Mary Chain in a cheerful mood. The best track is Twelve More, a dark ambient post-rock song, with layered guitar figures and mournful vocals.
