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

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

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
