Makings are a six-piece outfit with a unique sound that weaves between electro, rock & rap. In the first half of 2019 they performed at Whelan’s Ones To Watch, Vantastival, Youbloom @ Bloom In The Park, Oakfest, Midnight City, toured Germany and UK and launched an EP. Starting from November 2019 they have continued to release a single per week which at the time of writing includes Retro, Codex , Glitch and Lonely Child, all of which have been tested to be live favourites. Since the launch of their debut album ‘Cognition’ back in 2015, the band’s image & sound has continued to evolve to where they are quickly becoming the go-to band for venues & festivals that require a floor-filling performance. With special guests ‘Embrace The Crisis’ and ‘Stuck On Repeat’ this will make for a special evening of live electronica!
