The Money War was conceived during an American road trip when Dylan Ollivierre (Rainy Day Women) and Carmen Pepper (Warning Birds) were working out what to do following the breakup of their respective bands. It was during this highly creative period that a new project organically emerged. In LA and San Francisco they spent time with Arne Franger (Prince, Paul McCartney) and Tom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Fruit Bats) who convinced them of the value of the new songs. In 2016 The Money War were named Triple J unearthed winner to play at the Southbound festival. Their debut single ‘Give it Time’ picked up radio plays and great reviews in Australia, US and Europe, followed by ‘Recall’ which has received heavy rotation on Triple J and is picking up airplay on radio stations in the US.
