Formed from the ashes of My Little Pony, Norwegian four-piece Making Marks are the latest band to sign to indie-pop label Fika Recordings, a record label famed for providing tea and cake recipes with every vinyl release. To celebrate their new found partnership, the band have made one of their songs available as a free download. And what a joyous song it is.
"Hard to Be Good" is an upbeat, horn led song that call to mind the uncynical joy of Belle & Sebastian. This is unpretentious indie-pop that deserves to be savoured.
