Winter

This track appears on Bond’s latest album, Play, from 2011. In 2001, the band released Viva, a song inspired by the Winter theme of Vivadi’s Four Seasons. Then in 2008, they were commissioned by Peugeot to do more arrangements based on the Four Seasons for a car ad, which eventually led to the band releasing their new album.  Winter, as you may have guessed, share some characteristics with Viva as they are both based on the same classical piece. I have been listening to Bond for a long time because we used to always use our songs for our gymnastics routines and I think that they are a great crossover between classical and pop music. To me, this band is the proof that accessible art is not always tacky or low quality.
