‘Murder Murder’ is the new single from New Zealand-via Zimbabwe artist TAPZ. The track follows his previous single and first release on 100s + 1000s, ‘Run Don’t Run’ (the video for which premiered via Highsnobiety). ‘Murder Murder’ further acquaints us with TAPZ’s unique expression of noir-punk-r&b.

Crafted in his bedroom in the depths of winter, ‘Murder Murder’ is born from misunderstandings. TAPZ recalls feeling passion, aggression and love as he wrote the track, “I drew on my experiences of tainted, defeated love, channeling the hurt, anger and injustice of it in to the lyrics as I chant, “it’s just another murder”. I remember seeing my breath as I recorded the chorus at 6am, which went to paint the atmosphere of the cold synth driven murderous sound the song embraces”.

To paint more of picture, and bring in that cold feeling of rejection, TAPZ then took the song to New York, and in the winter of 2017, finished the song with Joe Pascoe (No Wyld) who added a guitar solo. TAPZ recalls, “I knew I had something special when I shared the song with Che Pope, his email response was filled with exclamation marks.”

With widespread support both locally and internationally under his belt on ‘Run Don’t Run’, the buzz is loud for TAPZ. Having already brought his electrifying energy to the same stage as heavy-hitters like A$AP Ferg, Jeremih, Tinie Tempah, Hermitude, G-Eazy and Danny Brown, his meteoric trajectory continues with TAPZ supporting BANKS on her upcoming Australian headline shows later this month.
