From The legendary producer of Urban Hymns comes Cognition, the highly-anticipated debut album from Dublin-Based Electro-Rock four-Piece MAKINGS.
Makings: a hotly-tipped, rising property on the Dublin music scene, fuse electronic beats and synthesizers with four vocals, guitars, and pounding live drums.
From the set to the stage, Irish musician/actor Rick Burn (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Vikings’, ‘Penny Dreadful’, ‘A Terrible Beauty’) has his artistic plate full as he also fronts this exciting new electro-rock quartet, along with Barry Shock from Scotland, Paddy Reynolds from Ireland and Raul Marcos from Argentina.
The band’s recent collaboration with producer/mixer Chris Potter (Blur, U2, The Rolling Stones) resulted in creation of their debut album, Cognition, which Danny McElhinney of the Mail On Sunday has scored 4/5, also describing their track Heart Attack as an “Instant Hit”.
Heart Attack has also already enjoyed pre-release prime time airplay on TXFM, RTE 2FM, RTE2XM, Sunshine 106.8 and Amazing Radio in Scotland.
The band, who over the recent months headlined and packed shows in Dublin, Edinburgh and London are expected to go back on the road this October, promoting and celebrating the worldwide release of Cognition with distributors Eire Supply on 9 October 2015.
