I don't like to use two different colors on a single button. It looks (imo) a little mixed up on this theme...

hmmm... as WhiteTie said is really hard to tell in such small space what's the current state of a track. I just looked at Limeflavour's LF Origins and, imo, it's the best design so far:

As you said it looks like symbols (arrows) are a good option.
