About Mako

MAKO signals the re-emergence of Declan O'Shea and Christian Montagne, both former members of acclaimed band Cyclefly, onto the music scene. During their time with the alternative rock band Cyclefly, Declan (vox) and Christian (bass guitar) toured throughout America and Europe with bands such as Linkin Park, Tool, Live, and Bush. The band also garnered places on the 'Best New Artist' lists of NME, Rock Sound, and Kerrang!. For the past two years Declan, a singer-songwriter from East Cork, and Christian, a songwriter-guitarist from Antibes, have concentrated all their energies on MAKO. While their new project retains the slightly edgy alt-rock sound that gathered so many fans for Cyclefly, it also possesses a more mellow maturity reflecting Declan and Christian's growth as songwriters and musicians. Declan's voice, which has been compared to people such as Bowie, Richard Butler (Psychedelic furs), and Annie Lennox, permeates MAKO'S unforgettable lyrics in a charismatic and evocative manner. For the recording of their debut album, LIVING ON AIR, the band returned to Christian's native Antibes on the Côte D'Azur. In collaboration with Sebastian Gastaldi of EMB Productions, the 14-track album was completed amidst the glorious French sunshine. The final mixes were left in the capable hands of Larry Fricke of LIVING ON AIR flawlessly encapsulates the musical development of the two artists who have combined Raw talent with past experience to produce an album that is truly 'unstoppable'.
