Makings are a six-piece outfit with a unique sound that weaves between electro, rock & rap. So far in 2019 they have performed at Vantastival, Youbloom @ Bloom In The Park, Oakfest, Whelan’s Ones To Watch, Midnight City and have toured Germany and UK. In February 2019 they launched their EP, which contains the singles 'Blackhole’, 'Pulse' and 'Beck N Call' , the first three tracks to be produced with Grammy-Award winning mixer Jim Lowe (Stereophonics). Since the release of their debut album 'Cognition' in 2016, the band's image & sound has continued to evolve to where they are quickly becoming the go-to band for venues & festivals that require an energetic floor-filling performance. With many more releases in the pipeline, the group expect 2019 to be their biggest year yet!
