NZ-based rapper and noir’n’b prodigious talent Tapz has returned with a powerful new tune ‘Murder Murder’.
Crafted in his bedroom in the depths of winter, ‘Murder Murder’ represents the swirling feeling of passion, aggression and love. “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”, explains Tapz.
TAPZ then traveled with the song to the New York winter to complete it with Joe Pascoe (No Wyld) who added the ripping guitar solo.
Since gaining notoriety with his previous single ‘Run Don’t Run‘, Tapz was chosen to participate in their inaugural Apple Lab project at Roundhead Studios New Zealand. The resulting piece of art was ‘Shadow‘, which was released exclusively via Apple and later across all streaming services. Along with the newest heat track, comes a dark and explosive video for ‘Murder Murder’ directed by Tapz himself together with Otis Prinz.
You can catch TAPZ supporting fierce singer/songwriter BANKS on her upcoming Australian headline shows later this month.
