Yorkshire’s hotly tipped trio Bang Bang Romeo release official video for their new single ‘What’s Up’. The track is a cover of the 90’s anthem penned by iconic fellow LGBTQ songwriter Linda Perry and made famous by her band 4 Non Blondes. Perry has also penned hits for Gwen Stefani, Adele and P!nk, – the latter of whom Bang Bang Romeo join on her sold-out stadium tour.


Comments Bang Bang Romeo front woman Stars:
“In 2019, I live in a world where if I travel to certain countries as an openly gay woman, I face jail time, I face dehumanisation and possibly death. Add on top of that, there are middle class, middle aged white men in suits telling me that if I accidentally fall pregnant, even if it was via rape, I am legally bound to still give birth? What I’m trying to say is... IT'S TWO THOUSAND AND NINETEEN! Linda Perry wrote this anthem back in 1992 because she genuinely asked the world and its times, “What’s Going On?!” We’ve re-released it with her blessing, because 25 years later, I’m here, still asking the same fucking questions. To my LBGTQ family and my strong female sisters, this ones for you.”


Speaking about Bang Bang Romeo’s version of the single Linda Perry comments “I don’t know, maybe I’m a sucker for a dark chord or a big dramatic voice. Or maybe it’s as simple as someone taking a classic and turning it into their own thing. Maybe I just like things that go BANG! BANG!”


The video filmed both in London and the US features drag queens, Morgan McMichaels from Ru Paul’s Drag Race and the inimitable Bible Girl lip-synching for their life for PRIDE’s next LGBT anthem. Bible Girl states: “Being on set and a part of the team for the video treatment of Bang Bang Romeo’s “What’s Up” was a BLAST. Working on a treatment for this song, which is a refreshing take on a universal classic, with such a talented crew will forever remain unforgettable!”


Bang Bang Romeo are expected to release their debut album 'A Heartbreaker's Guide To The Galaxy' later this year via Eleven Seven Label Group. They tour stadiums across the UK and Europe supporting Brits winner P!nk in June through August and have just announced a headline run for October.
