- A Thousand Half-Truths by Making Marks
1 review. Write a review for us »
Making Marks are a Norwegian quartet who make gentle indie-pop with boy/girl vocal harmonies and shuffly rhythms. Pleasantness is the order of the day, lots of catchy, wistful melodies and earnest lyrics. The songs are stripped back and almost folky in places, although sometimes with a not very folky synthesizer to give those uplifting vocal harmonies that extra bit of lift.
It's all quite likeable in a downbeat Radio 6 kind of way, and will appeal to people who are into the likes of The Magic Numbers in particular, but it's even reminding me of Mumford & Sons in places (if they were singing softly and breathily so as not to disturb their neighbours with their ridiculous hollering), lots of playful nods to folk and country but it's indisputably an indie rock record at heart.
It's a worthy enough effort that will please those looking for some harmless, friendly indie pop, but I can't help but wish they'd show their teeth every once in a while.
