MAKO signals the re-emergence of Declan O’Shea and Christian Montagne, both former members of acclaimed band Cyclefly, onto the music scene. For the past two years Declan, a singer-songwriter from Ireland, and Christian, a songwriter-guitarist from France, have concentrated their energies on their debut album ‘Living on Air’. 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), permeates MAKO’S unforgettable lyrics in a charismatic manner. ‘Living on Air’ flawlessly encapsulates the musical development of the two artists who have combined talent with past experience to produce an album that is truly ‘Unstoppable’.
