Having signed to Bella Union after two limited edition 7″ singles last year, Manchester-based quartet MONEY are putting the finishing touches to their much-anticipated debut album, due for release late summer. In the meantime, they have revealed the mesmerising video to ‘Bluebell Fields’, the  first single from the album. The video represents a loving collaboration between the band and young animator Dan W. Jacobs.

MONEY comprise of Jamie Lee, Charlie Cocksedge, Billy Byron and Scott Beaman. They formed in Manchester and embody the passion, creativity and optimism of a new generation of artists and musicians from the city.

They have had sold out shows before they’d even released a single, and MONEY have also drawn devoted fans to strange, beautiful and passionate gigs around the city over the last year or so, with much mythologised shows in the Sacred Trinity Church and a crumbling building known as the Bunker: an abandoned factory in the shadows of Strangeways.
