Wish 04:54


FourPlay put the ‘eclectic’ back into ‘electric string quartet’ with their second new single, following the rocking ‘Bound’ with ‘Wish’, a powerful, haunting ballad about living in a climate-changed world.

FourPlay, who have been wowing audiences around the world for over 20 years with both their radical reinventions of pop songs and their wildly eclectic original material, have often had environmental and political themes in their music.

‘Wish’ takes this to the next step: a haunting ballad with tones of Not Drowning Waving and ‘70s folk protest songs, with powerful lyrics delivered passionately by Tim Hollo and Lara Goodridge, intricate viola lines from Shenzo Gregorio, and a soaring, poignant cello solo from Peter Hollo.

Like the Bound single, Wish includes archival remixes from the band’s Now To The Future album, unreleased until now: Included are a quartet of remixes of their instrumental anthem "Now To The Future", reworked as glitchy post-rock by Brisbane's Chris Perren, experimental noise by Canberra's Shoeb Ahmad, and two very different, beautiful drone works from Adelaide's Panoptique Electrical and Melbourne's Part Timer. The EP closes with a radical electro-pop reworking of "You've Changed Your Tune" by Sydney's ollo.
