Watch: MONEY – Bluebell Fields

09 May 2013, 10:15 | Written by Dan Carson

Riding a wave of praise generated from their brace of 2012 singles – released on DIY labels Almost Musique and SWAYS Records – Manchester outfit MONEY have now been gobbled up by Simon Raymonde, becoming the latest addition to his Bella Union stable.

Their haunting, reverb-smeared sound has been polished up on album teaser ‘Bluebell Fields’ but that’s not to say their idiosyncratic romanticized voice is on the path to losing any of its authority. Perhaps not as cryptic, or bleak as their previous releases; what ‘Bluebell Fields’ lacks in echoing atmospherics, it more than makes up for with breathlessly beautiful guitar progressions, lilting vocal hooks and shuffling percussion.

Paired with Fun Adults man, Dan W. Jacobs’ esoteric, part-illustrated visuals, it’s a cleaner but no less impassioned composition from the Mancunian cabal.
