“I made “makeup” in my bedroom. To record my vocals, I’d turn the boiler off in my room so it would be quiet enough. After a while though, my Mum would tell me to turn it back on when it got that bit too cold. With the song, I remember playing around with this warbly arpeggiator sound and the rest of it followed. A friend showed me ‘Vienna’ by Ultravox which was an influence for “makeup” too. But my aim was to create escapism and atmosphere. I wanted the sounds to take me far away and sound exactly how I felt.” – Keaton Dekker
