Christ alive – just when we thought we were shot of the existential angst of WU LYF, along come another gloomy Mancunian band called MONEY (which we assume is some sort of ironic title decrying capitalism but we can’t be bothered to work it out). Their Facebook description begins ‘Death is an illusion…’, so it’s safe to say we won’t be seeing a Carly Rae Jepsen collaboration any time soon.
But the tunes are dynamite, sticking with you quicker than you can say alt-J. Last year’s key track So Long (GODISDEAD) – below – demonstrates the spine-tingling choral flow with an indie vibe. It’s stunning stuff, and enough reason to get on board their 2013 trajectory before they have the inevitable break down and pack it all in to seek the meaning of life in a croissant or somesuch.
