Money Paper Hearts

Money Paper Hearts

 New York City, New York, USA

raised on and influenced by punk and postpunk bands like fugazi, the clash, superchunk, and jawbreaker. MPH churn out honest, raw and powerfully catchy music.


In the rapid and competitive New York City atmosphere, it’s hard to find a band who isn’t posturing, spending more time on hairstyles and photo shoots than at rehearsals, focusing on their image versus their music… Money/ Paper/ Hearts just want you to listen.

While raised on and influenced by punk and post-punk rock bands like the Clash, Jawbreaker, Superchunk, and Fugazi, MPH have taken their musical ambitions and churned out honest, raw and powerfully catchy music.

They do things to you. But you have to give them time. One listen isn't enough. Enough to seep into your skin. It might strike a nerve, but this band doesn't feel like striking anything. Only a full blown attack will do.

The NYC/Brooklyn trio wrote, recorded, and produced this, their first EP, in a tiny practice space with a laptop and a few microphones. MPH’s lyrics are heartfelt and at times rather cryptic; the songs are filled with angular guitar riffs, constant percussion, unadulterated lead vocals and old-school shouting harmonies. Their rawness is refreshing.

Check out the sound on their EP and keep your eyes out for Money Paper Hearts in a town near you soon


negative feelings

Written By: money paper hearts

bad luck kid with a bullet in the breast, calling on his faith as he takes his last breath, gazed into the eyes of the one he's grown to love, he said they caught the bulls eye, they hit the center

you want action?
well take action!

I got a fist full of patience
I got a full pack of smokes
I got a GB in my hand
I wanna watch you choke,
I got Negative Feelings, now sit back I wanna watch you choke

Silent kids in the corner of the room
the ones who intend to change your every rule
talk about a kind with an intensity to loath
they caught the bulls eye , they hit the center.

I got negative feelings
