Kiwi indie-rockers Mako Road are yet another reason to pay close attention to what’s happening over in Aotearoa. With the brand new visual for album single ‘Don’t Keep Me Waiting’, it’s any wonder the four-piece have racked over 60 million streams so far.

Funny, endearing and full of Kiwiana, the clip shows off brand new sides of Mako Road members Rhian Ward, Connor Jaine, Connor McErlich and Robbie Day.

As the third single from upcoming debut album Stranger Days (out July 30th), ‘Don’t Keep Me Waiting’ has all the makings to follow the band’s past Platinum single and four Gold-selling singles on the NZ charts.

Debut album Stranger Days was recorded in Wellington’s The Surgery, produced by the band’s members Connor Jaine and Rhian Ward, engineered by James Goldsmith (Mermaidens, Beastwars, Into Orbit), and mastered by Chris Chetland (Savage, Snoop Dogg, Lorde, Drax Project, Scribe).

Since bursting onto the local scene out of Christchurch in 2017, Mako Road have sold out multiple Australasian tours, released debut EP The Green Superintendent and subsequent EP Local Safari, both in 2018, and clocked over two million YouTube views.
