about

FourPlay’s single Bound is a striking track with the lot: a dirty riff, urgent and soaring vocals, a deeply melodic chorus, and a crazed viola solo to push everything over the edge.
Originally inspired by Jack White and Beyoncé, Bound was written out of a jam while the band was a guest of the Bundanon Trust’s Artist-In-Residency program in the Southern Highlands of NSW. Vocals were later added by band member Lara Goodridge with lyrics about staring life’s challenges down while taking responsibility for who we are, and who we love. Big and bold, Bound reminds us that our decisions have repercussions, and that ultimately we’re all bound together.

Produced by Justin Tresidder (Macy Gray, Wolfmother) and FourPlay at Sony Music Studios, Sydney and mixed at Hydrofunk HQ, Mullumbimby, Bound has an immediately distinctive FourPlay feel while simultaneously charting exhilarating new territory.

As a bonus for fans of FourPlay’s electronic side, Bound includes three archival remixes from the band’s Now To The Future album, unreleased to this day: Evolve or Decay (Monk Fly remix) by Chris Hancock (from 2011), The Hunter (The Quickening - Comatone remix) by Greg Seiler (from 2008), and Trust (one wrong 2-step remix) by raven (from 2005, revisited in 2014), the solo project from FourPlay’s own cellist Peter Hollo.

Track Name: Bound
Now make an educated guess
Take a step right… to the left
So that all that we see - is all as it seems
We put his heart… in our hands
Think about it, take it like a man
Now inside the burden I know what it means
We made our beds, And it feels like…
I’m in two pieces, And it hurts like…
All in my head, And it feels like…
Red yellow, bittersweet, nightshade
Ripples on the shores, now I’m unmade
Shadows in the night no it’s not what I dreamed

WE ARE BOUND … BY LOVE
Turn around, stand up, be my man
Come & find me, cut your losses, take my hand
Stand by me, you’re my pillar, I’m your post, you are me
I put my trust in us now, you see
But there’s so - much - more than you and me
Take this weight inside, it’s getting heavy
We made our beds, And it feels like…
I’m in two pieces, And it hurts like…
All in my head, And it feels like…
Tangerine, copper top, back drop
You bring it with you, that ain’t gonna ever stop
Come on baby I’m your pillar, you’re my post, you are me

WE ARE BOUND … BY LOVE
