We March (s)ón

If you’re from anywhere near Southampton, or have even the vaguest interest in football, you’ve heard of Saints. The football club. Southampton FC. Currently 12th in the premiership.

We had a call at són HQ last month asking us if we’d like to get involved in recording a single with Saints legends – the new club song, “We Are Southampton” – with new lyrics penned by José Fonte, Shane Long, Ryan Bertrand and Kelvin Davis. We’d be laying down some string lines, providing lush backing to the vocal lines sung by the team.

It’s not every day we get the chance to rock ‘n’ roll with premiership legends, so we fixed some of our regular string players, jumped into the són van* together with a few players from our masterclass scheme, drove across town and parked behind a nice row of Bentleys and Maseratis outside Totton’s River Studios.

* There isn’t a són van. This is pure fiction. However, if you’d like to help fund one – we’re dreaming of one like the Scooby doo van, or maybe that shiny A-Team one – please drop us a line.

Scored and produced by Dan Mar-Molinero, you can finally see and hear the single here. We we’re delighted to be involved in such a great adventure and wish Saints, the team and all their fans a huge success with the recording. Keep marching on!

Continuing our tie-up with the club, són perform at St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday 11th Dec, for the home game against Middlesborough. We’ll be adding some typical són flair to all manner of festive favourites in various venues throughout the stadium. Keep an eye on our social media channels to catch some photos and maybe more…!
