FourPlay String Quartet is a four-piece rock band from Sydney, Australia, formed in 1995.
Although FourPlay began life playing mostly covers with originals appearing in the mix, their new album ‘This Machine’ sees the evolution of the string quartet as songwriters. In fact, it’s their first album of 100% original material, and arguably their finest, most intriguing long-player to date.
What’s in store for listeners? Epic soundscapes, rock ‘n’ roll, chainsawing violas, jazz, eastern influences, pop songs. It’s been eighteen years since the first FourPlay album, and the band has certainly come of age.
The four members (brothers Peter and Tim Hollo, Lara Goodridge and Shenzo Gregorio) have lived their lives together, played at some of the world’s most famous venues and festivals, and spent countless hours writing and jamming together – all of which has created a rare synergy and an unspoken understanding in how they go about their work. Now it’s time for the band to tour Australia!
