Sydney-based artist Don West marks his arrival with the release of his debut single ‘Money’. Outwardly innocent and endearing, ‘Money’ tells the tale of a quiet night that took a turn on account of profound escapism. It’s a song of prolonging the present to avoid the future and rationalising one’s decisions in the interest of pure unadulterated passion.
Packing an intriguingly nostalgic punch, ‘Money’ illuminates Don West’s crooning and honeyed vocals, setting them down felicitously beside dirty, crunching guitars. The track was produced by Scott Horscroft (Paul Kelly, The Presets, Middle Kids) at The Grove Studios on the NSW Central Coast. “‘Money’ is a tip of the hat to the girl I’ll probably never see again, that gave me the most memorable night I struggle to remember,” Don recalls.
