The Money War are a two-piece band from Perth, Australia and have been making a name for themselves for quite a while now. Taking influences from The Beatles, Bon Iver and Fleetwood Mac they’ve made up their own sound which really sets them apart from most upcoming indie bands.
Their new song “Stars” really showcases some of their key features, mainly their edgy lo-fi sound and drowzy vocals. The track has an old school blues feel to it in a sense, of the slow paced guitar playing and grainy texture to it. Combining this with some hazy vocals and hooky chorus, you end up with an interesting sound.
Great to hear some new material from the band, hopefully this leads to an EP release as it would be great to hear if they could stretch their style out further, and find out what else they’re capable of.
