The group offers up a snapshot of some of their best work of the year so far

Here's What Bucks Music Has Been Up To in 2021

It’s been non-stop since the turn of the new year at Bucks, so here’s a snapshot of some of the exciting stuff the team has been working on.

‘Step On’ – Happy Mondays – Barclays Moneyverse – Money Mentors

‘Step On’ by Happy Mondays, the fun, upbeat cover of '70s gem ‘He’s Gonna Step On You Again’ by John Kongos, creates the perfect soundtrack to the new Barclays Moneyverse advert. The ad features a new re-record of the iconic track, creating the dream-like atmosphere within the Moneyverse itself, a universe in which help and guidance with financial goals leads the path to your dreams. The classic rendition of the song outside of the Moneyverse lands us back in reality, leaving a positive and upbeat feeling, with the chaotic universe of finances securely navigated, organised and behind us.

Brand: Barclays

Agency: BBH

Re-Record: Siren

Track: Step On

Artist: Happy Mondays

Writers: John Kongos and Chris Demetriou

‘Wrestling With Elephants’ – Safari Youth – New Balance 'Impatience is a virtue'

New Balance have used the fun and upbeat 'Wrestling With Elephants' by Safari Youth in their recent worldwide 'Impatience is a virtue' campaign, featuring Jaden Smith. The track, written by Jonty Howard and Joe Murphy, was released in 2020 and adds a playful energy with an edge of swagger to the ad.
