About: Funeral Plot (from back of album Funeral Genius)
Makar is a unique indie pop rock band that makes poet and punk rejoice and dance together. We’ve played all over New York at clubs big and small (CBGBs, Pianos, Knitting Factory, Luna Lounge, Freddys Backroom, Galapagos) and never left without everyone loving our show. Even the sound guys say “pure talent.” Our lyrics touch on a variety of topics from love to social issues and everything in-between. There’s no one like Makar and Makar is like no one. We’re melodic and radio friendly, having been played all over the world. Our inspiration is the Beatles to The Velvet Underground to the late great Bowie to Sharon Van Etten and Grizzly Bear and many in-between. Makar’s second album, Funeral Genius, was called “essential” by Rust Magazine. It recently got us featured on M Pire magazine, interviewed in Vents, No Depression and Independent Artist Buzz, and earned us a top 10 spot on The Deli Magazine’s Top 300 Best NYC Bands along with Vampire Weekend, Fun., MGMT and Santigold.
