Not only a great song, but also a tribute to their hometown Gothenburg and their local football team, two time UEFA cup champions, IFK Göteborg.
The video has in the first four days been seen by over 17.000 people on youtube!
A catchy tune accompanied with a great video which combines warmth and humour, and also features legendary Swedish footballer Glenn Hysén (Liverpool, Eindhoven, Fiorentina) in a leading role. Check it out!
“It was Ian Persson from the Swedish rock band ‘The Soundtrack Of Our Lives’ that told us that IFK Göteborg needed songs for a tribute album. Me and Jenny just couldn’t resist the challenge to write a football hymn. While writing it though, we soon realized that the song was not just about football, but just as much about love and our hometown, and the love for our hometown” says Martin Schaub in West of Eden
After the more acoustic, traditional approach to their latest album “Songs From Twisting River” that featured guest appearances from Kate Rusby and Ron Block, West of Eden now gear up with a catchy folkrock song carried forward by a driving kick drum, filled with banjos and mandolins. There’s also an appropriate “angle choir” (yes, the nickname of IFK Göteborg is “The Angels”) performed by the Gothenburg Cathedral’s Girls Choir”!
