The Makeouts

Make Keene is the songwriter and frontman for the (somewhat eponymously named) The Makeouts. Catch them at your local watering hole and expect to hear a raucous concoction of semi-glossed jams that draw from a wide array of influences while exploring unusual combinations to a singular effect. Sure and solid melodies sing out over cascades of messy but handsome guitar, bass, and drums. The kind of sound that reminds you that the Hope diamond used to be dinosaur bones. Make's baritone voice is somewhat evocative of Roy Orbison but tinged with the disaffected drawl of J Mascis or Kurt Vile. Since 2019 they have released two EPs, four music videos, and several singles.
