Double Bangz – Murder
Murder is the fresh, exciting new video from UK-based Sierra Leone musicians Isa and Hassan, collectively known as Double Bangz. The bouncy tune puts a new electronic spin on the duo’s reggae dancehall sound, and was filmed in a colourful urban setting. It’s filled with catchy rhythms and hooks galore. “Murder” alludes to the 1993 hit song “Murder She Wrote,” by Chaka Demus & Pliers, and is taken from the duo’s forthcoming album, “Champions.” When asked about the song, which is being tapped as one of the potential hits from the album, they said, “This is the moment we have been waiting for. The time to claim our place as credible artists and group who are here for the long run.”
Their passion for music goes beyond getting famous, rather it is a platform for the duo to make positive contributions to their country and become positive role models to young people all over the world. Double Bangz started in 2012 when Isa and Hassan, both solo artists, decided to work together because they shared the same passion for music, and both believed in the ethos “Team work makes the dream work.”
Double Bangz have had hits with “No Lazy,” “Borcor,” “Gbashy Gbashy” and their most popular song, “Circulate,” featuring the legendary Awilo Longomba. The duo has performed in France, Holland and across UK alongside popular UK acts like Lady Leshur, Cashtastic, Mr Silva and Moe Logo. In 2015, Double Bangz was the opening act at the Afro-Beats Live event hosted by DJ Abrantee, a show that was headlined by JJC and the Big Bruvaz, at the prestigious Jazz Cafe where many established artists and musicians have given performances. Also in 2015, Double Bangz made history by becoming the first Sierra Leonean music act to receive nomination in the All African KORA Music Award 2016 for Best Group in Africa and they won awards for Best Video and Best Group in an online music award held by 232Connect. In addition, the duo also won the AWOL UK Award for best Music Acts 2016. With their lively style and vibrant rhythms, Double Bangz is definitely an exciting duo to keep an eye on.
