MAKING MARKS- Barcodes (7" vinyl + free MP3 download) (Fika Recordings)
1. Barcodes (Soup mix)
2. A Thousand Half-Truths (alternate version)
3. Barcodes (Skantze Tanzen remix)
Making Marks release the second single from the album 'In A Desert Of Consultancy'.
After the well-received debut single Ticket Machine, the hard working Norwegian quartet from Oslo return with Barcodes. A guaranteed summer pop hit, Barcodes combines the warmth and nearness of an indiepop dance floor classic, with all the coolness and distance you’d expect from upcoming stars of the Scandinavian music scene. Making Marks have toured heavily over the past year, playing across Europe with the likes of Allo Darlin and North America with Tigercats, culminating in a show stealing performance at NYC Popfest.
The Barcodes 7” features an exclusive non-album mix of Barcodes, featuring Allo Darlin’s Paul Rains on lapsteel guitar, who also lent his hand to the Barcodes artwork illustrations.
The flip side is a near-acoustic version of A Thousand Half-Truths, allowing Ola and Nina’s delicate vocal interchanges to flourish.
Versions of both tracks appear on their upcoming debut album, where in particular A Thousand Half-Truths showcases Making Marks’ diversity - from the bare heartbreaking tenderness of this single version to the euphoric and reverb drenched guitar solos that comprise the dynamic album version of the song.
Norwegian disco producer Skantze lends his hands to a remix bonus track for the single too, for an extra fix of uber-cool Scando-disco...
