The Netherlands-based rock crew known as SixStringSurfer have released their latest single, “Kick That Ball – Soccer Singalong Song.” The track is a classic-rock jam in the tradition of such sports-adopted tracks as Gary Glitter's “Rock 'n' Roll Part II” and Queen's “We Will Rock You,” written and recorded specifically to celebrate the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The track is straightforward, fun, energetic, and sure to add spice to any futbol parties anywhere in the world.
SixStringSurfer cite as main artistic influences such legends as Slade, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Rammstein, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Larry Carlton, Wes Montgomery, Beyonce, Madonna, Andrea Bocelli, Beethoven, Bach, and Erik Satie. Of these, most of their inspiration for “Kick That Ball” comes from Zeppelin and Sabbath, the resulting blend sounding not unlike the more thumping moments of AC/DC.
Asked to describe the inherent meanings of “Kick That Ball,” SixStringSurfer writes, “It's an original rock song by SixStringSurfer for everybody who loves football / soccer! Listen and sing and shout along! Have fun and enjoy football! Listen to this song and feel and enjoy the groove and energy of it, yeah! Ev'rybody's goin' crazyyyyyyy!”
SixStringSurfer's enthusiasm for the sport of soccer is plain to see, and especially as regards the current contest in South America.
“This is a general football song,” they write, “but of course this song is also very suitable as a soccer singalong song for World Cup Soccer 2014 in Brazil!”
SixStringSurfer is made up of Vinnie and Ernie, AKA BrainStorm. Vinnie has been playing guitar for more than two decades, largely along the rock, pop, and blues lines. Having been brought up singing traditionally, it was not until he heard the singing of Rammstein's Till Lindemann that he realized he, too, could front a rock band.
Ernie's musical talents stretch from guitar to keyboards, bass to drums, songwriting, composing, engineering, mixing, and even mastering music. He has played for many years in a Pink Floyd tribute band as well as several others, and spends his extra time producing music in the sound studio.
“Kick That Ball – Soccer Singalong Song” is available online worldwide. Don't miss the official music video, either, also available online.
