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 whom Bang Bang Romeo will join on her sold-out stadium tour which starts June 16th.

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 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.
