Mako Road – Velvet Piñata

Mako Road

‘Velvet Piñata’ is a track taken from ‘Stranger Days’, the debut album by New Zealand quartet Mako Road.

From the moment the lush lead guitar hook opens the song you are placed in a sunny mood. It’s a chilled summery track that feels very laid back. The guitars steal the show with their gorgeous sound but they are backed up admirably by the rhythm section and the vocal.

If the rest of the album is similar to ‘Velvet Piñata’ then those of you who love upbeat indie lounge pop are in for a treat.
