The Makemakes (Austria): 'We are yours!'

Posted 23 April, 2015, 21:43

Powered by: http://www.eurovision.tv The Makemakes were chosen out of an initial 16 candidates who participated in the Austrian national selection this year. The TV public and an expert jury agreed that The Makemakes were the most convincing act to represent their country on home ground, in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, with the song I Am Yours. The Makemakes, founded in 2012, is a rock music band from Flachgau and from the district of Vöcklabruck. The name is derived from the dwarf planet Makemake, which in turn owes its name to the creating deity Makemake in the culture of the Easter island. Already one month after they were founded, their first single The Lovercall showed up in the domestic charts. The band consists of Dodo (Dominic) Muhrer (vocals), Max (Markus) Christ (bass) and Flo (Florian) X. Meindl (drums). The band became known in 2013 through its appearance as opening band for Bon Jovi in Vienna Krieau. And the single Million Euro Smile successfully made it to the charts in 2014.
