Well-Strung - Royals


(via J.M.G.)

Well-Strung is made up of Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Trevor Wadleigh (viola) and Daniel Shevlin (cello), who made their debut as group in New York in 2012.

Out Magazine has this to say "Well-Strung Covers Lorde’s ‘Royals’:
"People love Lorde’s breakout hit, “Royals.” The beat’s infectious, the chorus is catchy, and the gestalt of the thing is pop brilliance. So one would think it’d be impossible to improve upon. Well think again. Enter Well-Strung, the singing string quartet with that’s as easy on the eyes as it are on the ears.

The band’s got a new album, POPssical, dropping in October and they’ve just released the video for one of its singles, a cover of “Royals.” Shot in black-and-white along New York’s tony Fifth Avenue, the song’s anti-capitalist lyrics juxtapose nicely with shots of the street’s upscale boutiques and department stores. Plus it’s got some good shots of the guys, so it’s definitely worth a watch. Well-Strung’s POPssical is out on Oct. 2."
