The unique, dance floor-filling sound of Makings can be described as electro-rock laced with rap. In January 2019 they hit the year running via a headline show at Whelan's 'Ones To Watch', giving them an opportunity to grace the main stage of the legendary venue. In February they launched their EP, also in Whelan's, and embarked on a German tour taking in Berlin, Hamburg and Kiel. They are currently working with Grammy Award winning mixer Jim Lowe (Stereophonics) on new material of which they already released the singles 'Blackhole’, 'Pulse' and 'Beck N Call'.
Between 2016 and 2018 they released their debut album 'Cognition' and toured internationally makings appearances at Vantastival (IRL), Swell Festival (IRL), YouBloom Festival (IRL), Lechlade Music Festival (UK), The Monarch (UK), Proud Camden (UK), The Balor Theatre (IRL) and many other venues around UK and Ireland.
Making a name for themselves as a powerful live band and with many more releases in the pipeline, the group expect 2019 to be their biggest year yet!
