With their penchant for warm melodious songwriting, Carmen Pepper and Dylan Ollivierre are The Money War, one of WA's most impressive indie-pop acts.
"Let Love In is written from the point of view of trying to navigate a friend out of a dark place. We wanted to write something that naturally and musically felt uplifting, even though the subject matter stemmed from a somewhat bleak space. It was certainly new ground for us to cover and is now a fave in our set."

Duncan Saige - Under the Weather     Indie, Pop, Rock 11/10/2019
Sounding like some kind of hybrid to Jeff Buckley and Supergrass, Duncan Saige glows with infectious vocal melodies enveloped in indie-pop and stripped back folk.
Under the Weather is about how Henry Clarke gradually came out of the trough and learnt some valuable life lessons along the way. "It’s extremely satisfying to know that some hard times can make you ‘upgrade into someone better’, as I reference in the chorus, and believe that everything can work itself out eventually."

"Dark of Night is about that space when hopelessness could envelop you but there's a sense of hope too; waiting on one moment to turn things around. We casually played it right after a long night of recording when all the mics were still on. Little did we know we'd end up using what we captured as the one take."'
