String quar­tet lead­ing fu­ture

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE | LEISURE -

FOURPLAY String Quar­tet mem­bers have been craft­ing their own brand of po­lit­i­cally charged in­die rock string ar­range­ments for more than two decades, grow­ing ever more eclec­tic with each re­lease. Their wildly orig­i­nal ma­te­rial and rad­i­cal pop song rein­ven­tions have seen the band play at es­teemed venues across the coun­try and the world, in­clud­ing New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Bar­bican Cen­tre in London, among oth­ers. Fast for­ward 20 years since the re­lease of their first al­bum

Catgut Ya Tongue, the es­tab­lished out­fit have just shared their sec­ond dig­i­tal re­lease of the year, with lat­est sin­gle Wish and are thrilled to now re­veal its im­pec­ca­bly suited new video by ac­com­plished film di­rec­tor Heidi Lee Dou­glas.

Lamb, and Devil Woman,

Heidi Lee Dou­glas is an award-win­ning writer/di­rec­tor whose works have fea­tured and pre­miered at mul­ti­ple film fes­ti­vals all across the globe. Team­ing up with Four Play, whose core mes­sages and vi­sion per­fectly mir­ror her own, Dou­glas has created a piece of work that is both evoca­tive and thought pro­vok­ing.
