We’re excited to bring you the premiere of Mako’s new single today, which lands through Ultra Music. Coming off the back of his Chameleon, which inspired several edits, is Parable. As with Mako’s trademark production, you can expect cinematic builds and rich musicality throughout – adding in guitar and a searching lead vocal over flickering percussion.
With his LP Fable due to land later in the year, Mako, also known as Alex Seaver reveals: “I had a lot of fun with this record, working with different instruments and strange time signatures. I don’t think that there are that many songs which come out each week that are in 7/8 and feature a Bulgarian Chant from the Middle Ages!
Also in the pipeline a single written for Lindsey Sterling alongside Jason Evigan, and he explains how isolation is helping him connect with fans: “I have been having some fun with Instagram stories, letting people into my recording process, and recording some acoustic versions of a couple of my older songs.”
You can catch Mako taking over Ultra’s Instagram for a live stream at 10am PST on Monday.
