Bio

There’s a light and shade to Keelan Mak - a push and pull between melancholy and enlightenment, breaking through into a dark and haunting place. An ethereal dreamscape, where song is melded with consciousness in Mak's fragile form of expression.

Smooth velvet vocal pushing through rich production inviting you in, to then fall down the rabbit hole that is Mak's imagination. Each sound adds to the dry and barren atmosphere where nothing is lost, instead, building on the fire of a slow burning groove.

Emerging from Brisbane, Mak’s music is a smoky, sultry mixture of the inner-city. Inspired by the art and artists that make up this fast-paced and evolving metropolis, which can be heard in Mak's captivating blend of indie electronica.

Keelan Mak will transport you to places rarely visited but that will quickly become your addiction.

An atmospheric start, crisp vocals and a delicious flow. I love that this is clever and a little bit slinky.

Having heard some of Keelan Mak's first couple of demos and early tracks I'm stoked to see him deliver on his obvious talent and potential. This one's got that sweet dream of emotion and drive. You can bump in the car or put it on at 1 in the morning.

Hearing the Kite String influences here and definitely a little Troye Sivan as Bridge mentioned. The instrumental chorus drives just right.
