Ticket Machine is a classic upbeat indie-pop track at first listen. However, dig a little deeper, beyond the twinkling guitars and lush vocal harmonies harmonies and you will find a much shadier and sinister core.
The b-side, Like Spinning, follows this somewhat darker-than-twee lead, exploring the vulgar, ugly and absurd side of life in a compassionate, beautiful way. Introspective while not reserved, Like Spinning recalls the tenderness of Belle & Sebastian at their best.
The single comes with a bonus track: a remix of Ticket Machine from Suburban Kids With Biblical Names’ Johan Hedberg.
