The Money War - The Music Ones to Watch 2017

Opening Wednesday morning’s breezy proceedings (meteorologically and musically) were The Money War. Recognisable to some as the new evolution of Rainy Day Women (popular on triple j unearthed a few years back). The Money War finds Dylan Olivierre and bassist/vocalist, Carmen Pepper – whose combined harmonies are a thing of beauty – in a new outfit inspired by a musical trip to the US in more recent times. New single, ‘Recall’, recalls (sorry) some of RDW’s acclaimed tunes, but there’s something a little sharper happening. The morning set seemed gentle but the breeze was misleading, there are potatoes under the sweets.
