Pop-rock and synth-heavy sensation Iglu & Hartly, whose UK top 10 hit ‘In This City’ catapulted them to fame in the mid-2000s, recently made a triumphant return to the UK after fifteen years. Following sold-out headline shows in Glasgow, Manchester, and London, frontman Jarvis reflects on the experience, saying, “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!”
The band, known for their genre-bending, nostalgic sound, has now graced fans with a brand-new anthem titled ‘Money.’ This sumptuous yet tight pop-rock production delivers melodic hooks between upbeat drum beats, creating an irresistible earworm. Utilizing bass, drums, guitars, keyboards, synths, and programmed drums, the track showcases Iglu & Hartly’s signature sound, offering an explosive power that will have the audience singing “I want my money” by the end of the first chorus.
Far from a surface-level celebration of consumerism, ‘Money’ carries a deeper message about empowerment and shedding self-doubt. Jarvis elaborates, “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.” Despite the contemplative theme, the track aims to be both inspirational and entertaining, crafting a glittery jam reminiscent of Hall & Oates’ 80s style.
With their unmistakable blend of pop-rock and synth elements, Iglu & Hartly continue to captivate audiences, proving that their creative spark is as vibrant as ever. ‘Money’ stands as a testament to their ability to infuse depth into catchy tunes, leaving fans eagerly anticipating what the future holds for this dynamic group.
