Bio

The Money War are Dylan and Carmen Ollivierre, a songwriting duo from Western Australia. Their new single ‘Beautiful You’ is an ode to their feelings meeting their new baby for the first time.

Since their formation in 2016, their success has seen them tour nationally with the likes of Meg Mac, Dope Lemon, Holy Holy and Neil Finn, who hand-selected them to open for him after hearing their music. They have toured internationally at such festivals as Southbound, FOTSUN and SXSW.

In 2019, the band’s debut album ‘Home’ was nominated for a The Australian Music Prize – the coveted national accolade that celebrates artistic merit and exceptional songwriting.

In addition to writing and recording as The Money War, Dylan also works as a producer and has written songs and worked in the studio with the likes of Meg Mac, Tia Gostelow, Tim Carroll (Holy Holy), Lucky Oceans and Riley Pearce.

Oh woah, this is super dreamy stuff from The Money War. There's like a nostalgic fuzz (both figurative and literal thanks to the ruminating guitar grumble) filtered across the whole song like Lana Del Rey meeting up with Hatchie.
