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, Iggy Pop, 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, the
band returned to Christian's native Antibes on the Côte D'Azur. MAKO flawlessly
encapsulates the musical development of the two artists who have combined raw
talent with past experience.
