    Sometimes waiting for things to change is nothing more than beating your head against a wall. You sit there hoping for something different, but all along you know it’s going to take some actual action on your part. together PANGEA recognize this truism and confront it on their new single, “Money On It”.

    Coming from their forthcoming Bulls and Roosters, the track finds singer William Keegan surveying a problematic relationship and finally deciding to address it head on. Despite the trying theme, it actually finds hope in honesty: “I put my money on it/ I put my money on you/ We can talk until we talk it out/ Or we can work until, yeah baby, until we work it out.”

    Musically, “Money On It” is a far janglier together PANGEA than fans have heard before, something that was only hinted at on previous single “Better Find Out”. There’s an almost beach sway in the rhythm that the guitars stroll lightly across. The rich vibes mixed with scratchy vocals show more of the continued evolution the band has been undergoing through 2014’s Badillac and 2015’s The Phage EP. That’s because, as Keegan explains to Consequence of Sound, together PANGEA made a concerted effort to not let themselves be crippled by waiting for things to change:

    “We never want to make the same album twice. ‘Money On It’ was a jumping-off point for us when we started writing again and it really set the tone for the new record. We are all a little older and a little more positive than we used to be. The song’s not exactly positive, but it definitely looks more on the bright side.
