MAKO Offer Acoustic Version of “Wish You Back” Ft. Kwesi Today

One of the highlights on MAKO‘s upcoming debut album HOURGLASS (December 9, Ultra Music) is “Wish You Back” featuring Kwesi.  Today (November 10), MAKO (who is producer/songwriter/vocalist Alex Seaver and producer Logan Light), have made available a video for an acoustic version of the song.  It captures Kwesi with Alex Seaver on piano accompanied by a drummer and guitarist offering a touching, self-reflective tale of love lost built over a cinematic arch within a simple frame.  View the video now here: https://youtu.be/2_7lChA0KHQ

Last week, MAKO launched pre-order for HOURGLASS with the release of “Wish You Back” (the Him Radio Edit). The Dutch house duo The Him bring a bouncy flavor to the track with club-friendly charm and serves as an instant grat for the album.  Kwesi–a songwriter signed to Scooter Braun’s Sheba Publishing-also co-wrote “Wish You Back” with MAKO.

A stark shift in musical aesthetic, HOURGLASS sees MAKO graduating beyond their early beginnings in dance music and reaching far into the spheres of pop, indie rock and beyond.  Highlights on the album also 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; “Run for Your Life,” which is three minutes of pop genius produced with the help of Norway’s Rat City and features a guest vocal from Natalola; and “Craziest Day I Ever Had,” a hilarious tale of misadventure in Los Angeles.

Around the release of the album, MAKO will perform their first-ever live shows with a trio of showcases at the Mercury Lounge in New York City December 6, Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco December 13 and Resident in Los Angeles December 14.  At each show, Alex Seaver will sing and play piano and Logan Light will perform on drums and programming.  They will be accompanied by a guitarist and additional players.  Tickets are on sale now.

Look for MAKO to perform a select run of shows around Hourglass’ release:

Tuesday, December 6                        Mercury Lounge, New York City

Tuesday, December 13                      Rickshaw Stop, San Francisco

Wednesday, December 14                 Resident, Los Angeles

Wish You Back

I get so deep in the bottle

that I can’t swim back out

I swear I meant to call you

If I could get back up

At 5 o’clock my shadow empties a grave

I hope you can forgive

That I let slip 9 hundred chances to say

I love you

Cause I take one step forward

I take two steps back

I keep reaching out for ya

but you already left

and I don’t know where we fell off track

but if I had one wish

I’d wish you back

Do you remember

Cause I just can’t forget

If I could see you smile like that again

It’d mean everything

And I know that I lost you out in the rain

I hope you can forgive

that I let slip 9 hundred chances to say

I love you

Cause I take one step forward

I take two steps back

I keep reaching out for ya

but you already left

and I don’t know where we fell off track

but if I had one wish

I’d wish you back
