After a reshuffle of branding and image, The Great Leslie (previously Ollie Trevers) will rock your world with their latest offering ‘Money’. A track so slick and sublime you are instantly reminded that Rock N Roll is here to stay and that is exactly what The Great Leslie brings to the table.
Quoted from the lead singer ‘Ollie Trevers’, ‘Money is a song influenced by a past relationship, where I found that my partner was very materialistic which in turn made me realise how different we were as people’. The track also attempts to highlight ‘love as the true currency of people’s souls, as opposed to the contents of their bank accounts’ symbolising our saddened materialistic society. ‘The Great Leslie’ steered the track away from being a protest song, but instead wanted to share with the world the message they are portraying, in hope that the audience can infer the rest. Ollie quotes ‘Money’ to being ‘a bloody banger!”.
