The Macks

Portland, OR

Like every young band establishing their sound and presence through shows and touring, the 2020 pandemic turned music on its head. For The Macks, this time of isolation forced the band to redefine the way they interacted with music. Freshly laid off and living all under one roof in a creaky messy home, the band played and wrote for hours every day, searching for inspiration in places they haven’t looked before. While 2017’s "Camp Poppa" and 2019’s "Yup" document the lively garage rock energy of a show, their to-be-announced record wasn’t made for anyone but themselves. The result is adventurous and eclectic, containing the band’s most infectious hooks, jarring rhythms, and creative presentation to date. Produced and put to tape in Denver by Nate Cook and The Yawpers, "Rabbit" adds an entire new spectrum to The Macks’ sound. And despite the nature of the record’s inception, the feelings of frustration, apathy, and hopefulness should resonate and fuel the shows as the world opens up for live music again. With a fresh lineup that’s delivering the most creative music for the band to date, The Macks are coming at music from a fresh angle. FFO Iggy Pop, Can, Osees, Velvet Underground
