The Makeshift is a hardworking indie rock band from the Ann Arbor area that strives to create something unique and new within the predictable, done to death landscape of modern rock music.

The Makeshift's self titled E.P. is a record about self analysis and loss of perspective. The record's intentionally vague lyrical content leaves room for interpretation while still voicing strong lyrical themes. The band achieves an intense and driving feel throughout the album without resorting to formulaic musical structures or excessively overdriven tones found in so much of today's music. A powerful heaviness and huge dynamic range is achieved without ever sacrificing tonal clarity or rhythmic precision. At the core of The Makeshift's sound are strong, pronounced melody, intricate rhythmic changes, and accompaniment that bobs and weaves above and below the vocals without ever losing sight of the melody. The result is a very fresh and energetic sounding debut.
