Indie pop may well have been born in the UK, but it has more recently become an international phenomenon.
Scandinavia, for instance, is swarming with groups who clutch a well worn copy of C86. Hailing from Oslo, Making Marks are one of the more impressive, insightful new bands to cross our path in some time.
Working with Fika Recordings, Making Marks' debut album was recorded in London late last year. Paul Rains from Allo Darlin' contributed pedal steel guitar, while recent shows saw the band share a stage with the likes of Asobi Seksu, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and more.
For their new video, Making Marks hooked up with an indie hero. Darren Hayman led Hefner to cult worship, before embarking on his own, often extremely varied solo career.
Taking charge of the visuals for 'Lemon Sheets' the film maker responds with a bright, rather sweet clip which emphasises the camaraderie between the members of Making Marks.
Watch it now.
