Norwegian quartet Making Marks have unveiled the video to their new song 'Lemon Sheets', taken from their upcoming debut Album 'A Thousand Half-Truths' due for release on February 3rd 2014 through Fika Recordings.
The video, directed by Darren Hayman, features the band communicating in some sort of sign language - though possibly not the traditional way. It's innocent and playful, reflecting the liveliness of the track with its jingling, uplifting keyboard and guitar melody and energetic drum beats. There's a sense of determination in this track that the band know exactly what the significance of 'lemon sheets' is - even if the listener doesn't.
There's more inviting sounds where that came from too as the band gear up to unveil their first release as Making Marks, having formerly been a part of the group My Little Pony (whose final album was also entitled Making Marks). Along with the English language songs, they will also be throwing in a couple in their native Norwegian language on the album. 'We have a couple of songs in Norwegian now', Making Marks told us in an interview. 'One on the album and also one we're going to release as a single... [People] are really curious to hear our language.'
