It feels like Cork brothers MKAI have been waiting a long time to burst into our consciousness. And it seems they have come fully formed. No surprise when you find out their debut EP was produced by Rob Kirwan of Hozier, Bell X1 and U2 fame.
‘Waiting’, the title track of the upcoming EP seems aptly named all things considered. But it appears the brothers are done waiting and are ready for us to accept them into our open arms, which we will do gladly. Trust me. ‘Waiting’ is a beautifully produced track and a strong opener for any debut. It has resonance, passion and a certain je ne sais quoi incorporating indie and pop influences with a good ear for a hook.
