about

Ticket Machine is the debut 7" from Making Marks.

Making Marks are from Oslo, Norway. After 5 years as My Little Pony, they’ve slimmed down to a 4 piece to become Making Marks, taking their name from the former outfits’ final LP. They’ve gigged with the likes of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Asobi Seksu and Marit Larsen, toured extensively around Europe and the USA, including appearances at SXSW, clocking in well over 200 gigs in 12 countries. As My Little Pony, they won the Best International Album award at Premio Pop Eye for Think Too Much, and have already completed a sold out Italian tour as Making Marks.

“[they] play upbeat, lovely soulful indie pop. Think Belle & Sebastian sprinkled with Motown, jazz, and far more instruments, including the banjo, classical strings, brass and the glockenspiel. What keeps My Little Pony an indie pop band as we know it is frontman Ola Innset’s serene, Paul Simon-esque voice.”
 MTV

“Citing Neil Sedaka and Chris Isaak and posses the gift of tenderness like Belle & Sebastian. Making Marks, [are] rich and varied, with strings, trumpets and electric guitars.”
 Rolling Stone

“Wonderful twee-like qualities makes them sound like one of those legendary Labrador bands that have been perfecting this craft for years and years”
 Panic Manual

"There's no doubt about who's the finest indiepop band in Norway" - panorama.no

Track Name: Ticket Machine
At 7.38
The bus is always full
But we keep holding on

And no one’s filled with hate
We’ve left it all at home
Later it will dawn

And they say there’s a light
That never goes out
By the bus driver’s seat
Or the ticket machine
All the lonely people here
We do our best
But it costs a lot to hope

Do you remember books you’ve read?
Does it stick in your head?
Only punishment no crime

Because I miss you when I get in and out of bed
Or when something makes met think about the things you said
When we spoke for what you said you wished was the last time

But when the sun comes up
We’ve allready gotten used to the darkness
The light burns out our memories
This film will never be seen
It’s not suitable for families

They say there’s a light
That never goes out
By the bus driver’s seat
Or the ticket machine
And everybody’s all right
With everything
As long as we eat
From the food machine
All the nervous people here
We do our best
But it costs a lot to hope
Track Name: Like Spinning
These bicycles are standing still
But a voice is telling us we’re going up a hill
It’s an up hill battle, and we’re stuck in the saddle
But here of our own free will

There’s a bass drum playing and we’re told to get up from our seats
We’re all the real Slim Shady now, and there’s no way to cheat your way out of it
The voice is all so positive, and we are all so formative in our years
And our ends will meet

But we can work it out
We can be healthy and happy and free
Guided by voices
In neon lit gyms
We can find out who to be

Open planes and wind in our hair
Just spinning and going nowhere
Under downlit skies we open our eyes
So innocent and unaware
