Manchester's MAKEMAKE is a startlingly distinctive pop voice.
Off piste synth pop with some post-punk bass lines, the project is beginning to settle into something quite intriguing indeed.
Helmed by producer Brendan Williams, the universe MAKEMAKE inhabit is marked by early Roxy Music, The Human League's imperial pop phase, and some of the more modern school of off beat Mancunian pop.
New single 'Lucretia And The Sky' is an itchily infectious number, a digital pop mini-epic framed by astronomy, history, and a killer chorus.
The song was inspired by the life of Caroline Lucretia Herschel, as Brendan explains:
“I became fascinated by her story after reading Richard Holmes’ book The Age of Wonder. She contracted typhus at the age of ten and was written-off by her father, who decided that she should not be formally educated. Despite this she became one of the most important astronomers of her time.”
