New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Out August 10, Vitamin String Quartet continues their tradition of "sonic perfection" (Nerdist), putting their singature, virtuosic spin on the most popular tracks from the first half of this year with 'VSQ Performs The Hits of 2018.' Featuring renditions of the Black
Panther smash "All The Stars
" by Kendrick Lamar
& SZA, Justin Timberlake
& Chris Stapleton's crossover hit "Say Something
" and Bazzi's electric "Mine," VSQ brings an out-of-this-world take on these chart-toppers.
Consequence of Sound says VSQ's strings-only renditions of music and pop-culture's biggest hits are "sumptuous [and] symphonic," and Buzzfeed echoes that their uncanny arrangements "transform your favorite pop songs into works of art."
From appearances on HBO's Westworld, to the Sean Penn-directed film The Last Face to TV hits like Modern
Family and Shameless, VSQ's "atmospheric" (Thrillist) hits have made "classical versions of pop music cool, [by] infusing the drama of mainstream composition into the classical community" (New York Observer).
On August 13, VSQ will perform a special headlining show at New York City's City Winery. This show follows sold-out back-to-back nights at LA's Hotel Cafe and NYC's Rockwood Music
Hall already this year.
