Auckland via Texas, psych-wave group Makeshift Parachutes share The Hole, a compelling episode of synthesized textures and sweeping melodies, accompanied by a haunting, off-kilter video directed by Craig Murray and produced by Stephanie Escalante.
Makeshift Parachutes is Sharif O’Connor (guitar/keys), Daniel O'Connor (bass/vocals), Christian McCollum (vocals/guitar) and Arthur Brewer (drums/keys).
Formed in 2013, in a wine cellar somewhere in the depths of Austin’s City Limits, the psychedelic quartet began piecing together their electric live show and having fun with effects/gear along the way. When the O’Connor brothers returned home to Aotearoa in 2015, McCollum and Brewer followed, and the rest is history. Since then, Makeshift Parachutes have shared a small catalogue of releases online, including King Eeyore’s Xanax Party, which was released in May 2018.
