Makemake

Makemake is the new solo project from producer Brendan Williams, known for his work with Dutch Uncles, GoGo Penguin and Kiran Leonard, among others. The debut single from the project, ‘I’m The Form In The Way’, features Everything Everything’s Michael Spearman on drums, Robin Richards of Dutch Uncles on bass and Williams’ long term collaborator Amalie Briden on vocals.

“I’ve been making this record between the cracks whilst producing other bands over the last few years”, says Williams of the forthcoming Makemake album. “The people I was recording began to influence my own music as we shared ideas, so I guess it was natural that some of them would become collaborators. The individual tracks started out purely as an escape, I wasn’t making them for anyone apart from me. There’s been no constraints really, I’ve not had to think about budgets or deadlines”.

‘I’m The Form In The Way’ features a stream of synth and guitar lines that bounce back and forth off each other playfully. Watch the video for the song here:
