***The Money War touring nationally with Meg Mac in September/October – presented by Triple J***
The Money War was conceived while Dylan Ollivierre (Rainy Day Women) and Carmen Pepper (Warning Birds) drove across the US in late 2015. Inspired by the trip, a pile of iPhone demos were created. After a chance meeting with producers Thom Monahan (Fruit Bats, Little Joy) and Arne Frager (Prince, Paul McCartney) in a dive bar in San Francisco, the duo were convinced of the value of the demos and began work on materializing a record.
In 2016 The Money War were named Triple J unearthed winner to play at Southbound festival. Their debut single ‘Give it Time’ picked up radio plays and great reviews in Australia, US and Europe, followed by ‘Recall’ which has received heavy rotation on Triple J and is picking up airplay on radio stations in the US including NRP.
The Money War's debut self-titled EP was released in April 2017 and the band have since supported Holy Holy on their 'PAINT' National Tour. The band are set to support Meg Mac on her upcoming 23-date Australian tour, which runs throughout September and October. The Money War's latest single 'Hold On' will be released September 8.
"Full sounding, with angel vocals and a solid drive"
