Bond, the all-female, multi-million selling electronic string quartet, have applied their unique sound to one of classical music's most popular and iconic works - Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The modern interpretation of the Baroque masterpiece has been recorded by Bond exclusively for Peugeot to mark the launch of its new 308 CC, which goes on sale in June, and features a first-in-class Airwave Neck Heating System that blows warm air around the necks of the front seat occupants to give them the pleasure of a convertible all year round.
Bond's new version of the Four Seasons is available to download exclusively from the Peugeot mini-site, www.opentoallseasons.co.uk before being released on the group's forthcoming new album.
In recording the Four Seasons, Bond were inspired by their good friend and colleague, Nigel Kennedy, and the genre-defying group aim to bring to Vivaldi's timeless classic the modern rigor and panache that has become their musical signature.
This is also the first time that Bond unveils to the world their new member, Elspeth Hanson. Elspeth is the beautiful and talented violinist who played alongside David Beckham, guitar legend Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis at the British handover at the closing ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.The launch of the 308 CC compliments the Peugeot portfolio with its highly stylish profile and the `must have of the year' for conscious style enthusiasts. Taking centre stage, the fully automatic retractable roof can transform in 20 seconds and its operation can be viewed on the color display, turning the car into a dynamic Coup or an elegant Cabriolet according to its occupant's choice.
