"The Lovercall” storms iTunes and Musicload Charts
Newcomer band The Makemakes is riding a wave of success created by their song “The Lovercall”.
Marketed by online music distributor Feiyr.com, the song has been among the chart leaders of the largest download portals for several weeks now.
It sounds like flowers, colorful paper streamers and a little bit of heartache – since the end of May “The Lovercall” by The Makemakes has become one of the most downloaded songs on the largest and most important download sites in Austria. In mid June it led the Musicload.at charts for several days. It even rose to the top three of the Austrian iTunes Rock charts, next to bands like “Die Ärzte” and “Die Toten Hosen”. Almost all public and private radio stations in Austria are playing the hit on heavy rotation.
However, the band members, Florian Meindl (drums), Dominik Muhrer (vocals, guitar) and Markus Christ (bass) aren’t done yet. They are aiming squarely at conquering the international charts. The three full-blooded musicians from Mondsee near Salzburg are in their early twenties and classically trained, award-winning instrumentalists. They combine elements on Rock, Reggae and Punk into their own special blend. Their band formed in 2007 as “The Skaverells” before being renamed in May 2012.
Currently, The Makemakes rock audiences at city festivals, events and concerts in Austria and southern Germany. Their next single will be released in October 2012.
