FourPlay put the ‘eclectic’ back into ‘electric string quartet’ with their second new single, ‘Wish’, a powerful, haunting ballad about living in a climate-changed world. As with previous release, ‘Bound’, the digital-only release of ‘Wish’ will be available Friday 10 August and includes archival remixes of FourPlay songs. To celebrate the release the band will play east coast shows in Canberra, Melbourne, Nambour, Brunswick Heads, and Sydney during September.

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.

‘Wish’ began life when the band was trapped behind rising floodwaters while enjoying the Bundanon Trust’s Artist-In-Residency program in the Southern Highlands of NSW. Tim’s older daughter kept calling to make sure he was OK and, at one point, said to him “I wish that I’d been born before climate change was happening.” Tim, a long-time environmental activist and founder of Green Music Australia, said those words “hit me in the guts”. The conversation inspired this song, with the message that “we can’t wish away the times we’ve been given; we have to do with them what we can.”

Don’t miss FourPlay as they showcase ‘Wish’ along with tracks from their entire career at a venue near you.
