Culture blog site Lemúrinn drew attention to the music video explaining that Bang Gang, now known as the renowned musical project of Barði Jóhannsson,  started as a surf band over twenty years ago when Jóhannsson teamed up with his college friend Henrik Björnsson, now the frontman of rock band Singapore Sling .  Jóhannsson continued using the band name Bang Gang but for a different genre of music.

The band members remained good friends but went their different ways musically, each forging a successful international musical career.
