Iglu & Hartly Shares Music Video for 'Money'


Pop-rock and synth-heavy group Iglu & Hartly first gained recognition in the mid-2000s when their UK top 10 hit song ‘In This City’ helped them establish themselves.


After selling out their insanely popular headline shows in Glasgow, Manchester, and London, Iglu & Hartly recently made their first trip back to the UK in fifteen years. Speaking on the experience, frontman Jarvis says, “It was a dream come true to come back to the UK after so many years away and be reunited with so many passionate fans as if we were never away. It was the true Iglu & Hartly experience! A sweaty action-packed sing-along fest!'


Iglu & Hartly has blessed us once more with their brand-new song, ‘Money’. It’s a soundtrack for those ‘looking at yourself in the mirror pep-talks before that big meeting’ moments.


A sumptuous yet tight pop-rock production with melodic hooks breaks out in between the upbeat drum beats, making this track an irresistible earworm. Along with vocals, the construction of the track uses bass, drums, guitars, keyboards, synths, and programmed drums to create a fun and uplifting vibe. The audience will be singing "I want my money" by the end of the first chorus thanks to the track’s explosive power and Iglu & Hartly’s trademark genre-bending, nostalgic sound.


The message in the alt-pop radio-ready track is not to be mistaken for a surface-level love for consumerism; it’s about getting your blood pumping and letting all the self-doubt evaporate. Frontman Jarvis comments on the track, "I think money is a funny thing. A token for wealth, but actually worthless of itself only gaining value by law. In that sense, it can be comedic and quite funny, our pursuit of money as a society. People go to great lengths and spend all their lives accumulating a fabricated resource. I always want to be inspirational in my writing, as I see songwriting as a service to humanity. But at the same time, with ‘Money’ I wanted to craft a song that could take this questionable desire for money and make it into a glittery jam, kind of like what Hall & Oates would have done back in the 80s.”
