Inspired by hip-hop, jazz and rock, Norwegian indie band ¡BangBang Watergun! release their new single White Gold and it’s a gem.
The band desire to be uniquely expressive, varied and intriguing starts with the bands’ name through to their music. Steering away from the mainstream chart song template, the 4+min track leans into innovative soundscapes, playful in expression and overlaid with an impeccable soul-hop vocal delivery by Ragnhild Moan. The groove-driven single transits into psychedelic realms climaxing with fiery electric guitar notes and the power of their collective voices.
If Fieh, White Ascot and Giddygang are already in your collection, then you’ll be sure to add ¡BangBang Watergun! immediately. ¡BangBang Watergun! join a generation of young Norwegians showing their desire to break convention and seek music originality. Working as a band, yes a BAND, it’s exciting and becoming the defining sound of soul music from Scandinavia.
¡BangBang Watergun! is an indie band consisting of 5 young musicians; Ragnhild Moan – Vocals, Ask Vatn Strøm – Guitar, David Andreas Emhjellen Paulsen – Keys, Erlend Tredal – Bass and Sigmund Vestrheim – Drums, and are already gaining a reputation for scintillating stage performances. The five-member band released their debut single “Disperse” in February 2020. You can feel the energy pulsating through this track as it comes alive with waves of vibrant beats and electronic shimmers.

Unforgettable name, exceptional single. White Gold is everything modern music should be. To say I love this would be an understatement!
