The hunky stars of “Well-Strung: The Singing String Quartet” are back and getting into a presidential swing with their new video.
The group -- comprised of first violinist Edmund Bagnell, second violinist Chris Marchant, violist Trevor Wadleigh and cellist Daniel Shevlin -- puts a topical spin on Fountains of Wayne's 2003 smash, “Stacy's Mom.” Titled “Chelsea's Mom,” the whimsically revised version is an ode to 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
“Now she's much more than the FLOTUS that she used to be,” the guys croon as they roam about a 2016 Clinton campaign office. “The nation needs a champion, it's time for Hillary!”
Pairing a classical sound with a contemporary pop hit, “Chelsea's Mom” should please fans of Well-Strung's earlier tunes, and is the first single off the group's sophomore album, “POPSsical.” Promising new renditions of Mozart, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears, the guys are raising funds for the release of “POPSsical,” which is slated for an October release, via a Kickstarter campaign, which you can check out here.
Well-Strung will also support the album with a brand-new live show, “Summer Lovin,'” which opens in Provincetown, Massachusetts on July 1.
