Let us introduce you to the band behind your next favourite summer anthem.
Sounding like the combination of cocktails in the sun and a tropical breeze by the pool, Brighton-based Makaws bring their Spanish flair just in time for the summer months with ‘Feeling’.
Made up of Michael Foster and Alex Girón, a half ‘Wigan-ese’ brought up in Spain and a pure Spaniard, Makaws deliver an anthem brimming full of hope and love to the dancefloor. But, that’s not necessarily always been the case for Foster.
Michael, the songwriter, had noticed that in the past he’d mainly relied on sad feelings and melancholy while writing. “Writing sad songs is a lot easier than writing happy songs”, he said in a press release.
Since then, he’s developed his writing to evoke the beauty of good things, of heightened emotions and of new moments in life. This is reflected perfectly in ‘Feeling’.
“Feeling reflects the beauty of love at first sight, the tension and mixed feelings that come along when seeing someone you´re attracted to for the first time and trying to interact with that person,” he added.
“Also, we can perceive the ability of stupidly falling in love in a few minutes and wanting to give everything you have to that person without even knowing him/her.”
