Bio

'Hey Now' is the latest, undeniably catchy single from The Money War, following infectious tracks 'Recall' and 'Hollywood'.

'Hey Now' will appear on The Money War’s forthcoming debut album, set for release early in 2019, following the band’s successful gigs in the USA and widespread radio coverage throughout the States.

“The song is about making a commitment to someone and being ecstatic about it but also realising that you’re in a very different position to where you thought you’d be when you reached that milestone. Life usually takes a different course than you anticipated and doesn't always match the set of ideals you once held. I like how the line 'time is coming for us baby' can be interpreted in different ways depending on how you look at it. It’s kind of a romantic yet bittersweet sentiment,” explains lead singer Dylan Ollivierre, who also wrote and produced the track.

After being unearthed by Triple J, The Money War dropped the outstanding single ‘Recall’, from their debut EP. It became the fifth most played song of 2017 on triple j, helping the band grow their fan base in Australia and subsequently opening doors in the US. They received praise from their peers, including Neil Finn who expressed his admiration for their songwriting after seeing them support him prior to heading to Austin, Texas to showcase at South by Southwest.

A band that could make a good song out of the terms and conditions of a software update.
