It’s Independence Day here in Barbados and local pop-punk band Sundown Superhero has decided to mark the occasion in their own special, unique way. This morning the band released their take on the Barbados National Anthem; a minute long high-energy, rock infused version of the song.
Speaking to Zeitgeist, bassist and lyricist for the band Craig Haniff said:
“We wanted to pay tribute to our country but in our own style of music. We certainly wanted it to be different from the traditional Independence posts. It was actually a pretty last minute idea. We were brainstorming how we could make an Independence post our own and it just popped in our heads and we arranged and recorded it [in about three days]. Our anthem is a pretty awesome musical piece!”
