All Hands_Make Light (stylized as ALL HANDS_MAKE LIGHT) is a Canadian experimental noise-pop duo, consisting of singer Ariel Engle and instrumentalist Efrim Menuck.[1]

The project was launched in 2020 after Engle, associated with AroarA and Broken Social Scene, and Menuck, a member of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, decided to work on something together, and took shape through filesharing over the internet after the COVID-19 pandemic limited opportunities to collaborate in person.[1] They released their self-titled debut album in 2021,[2] and gave their first live performances including an appearance at the 2021 Pop Montreal festival.[1]

They followed up in 2023 with Darling the Dawn,[3][4] which was longlisted for the 2023 Polaris Music Prize.[5]
