"We hit it off immediately at a writing session for another artist - and put something on the books at our own studio soon after," says MAKO's Alex Seaver. "I don't think I've ever written songs quicker than I have with Nat. We were also very fortunate to meet a Norwegian collective of producers called Rat City that helped collaborate with us on the production. They are responsible for that disco-indie-dance flair which picked the song up for us so much."

With Hourglass lies a distinct hybrid musicality layered with their diverse backgrounds and unique interests stepping MAKO forward to present a new, consolidated sound. Dig into "Let Go Of The Wheel" where a serene guitar-and-piano combo pair beautifully with Seaver's love-hued lyrics which explode as he sings of simpler times and future days or "Wish You Back" featuring Kwesi, an emerging singer-songwriter from Scooter Braun's Cobra
Other album standouts include "Smoke Filled Room," MAKO's breakthrough single which soared into pop and dance radio airplay charts via continuous support on SiriusXM's BPM and iHeartRadio's Evolution channels and landed at #1 on the Dance Airplay chart; "North Dakota," a stunning and unique soulful ballad about finding solace outside of the big city; And "Craziest Day I Ever Had," a hilarious tale of misadventure in Los Angeles. With all these tracks and more, MAKO have garnered over 20 million Soundcloud plays and 100 million combined plays on YouTube.
