The Correspondents

The Correspondents consist of a singer Mr Bruce and a producer Chucks. Both growing up in South London, they formed in 2007 and within two years had taken their hi-octane genre-blending dance music from house parties to festival main stages.
It’s hard to pin down exactly what they do. Mr Bruce dances in a tempestuous whirlwind of monochromatic energy while singing, rapping and scatting about the trails and tribulations of love, lust and everything in between. Chucks takes the crowd on a journey through genres from the retro sounds of the Swing Era to Blues and 60s Soul, and then out the other end into Electronica, Drum and Bass & Jungle. The Correspondents are never afraid to stick to their pop sensibilities, but get fidgety dwelling anywhere too long.
Since their inception they have toured far, wide and relentlessly bringing their unique live show to huge crowds, earning themselves Telegraph's ?Top Ten Glastonbury Highlights' two years in a row. The Times mentioned the band as ‘bundles of fun’ and the surprise success of Wilderness Festival 2017.
Following on from their more introspective 2014 album release ‘Puppet Loosely Strung’ the Correspondents come out with their 2nd long player, ‘Foolishman’ in 2017. It rediscovers their energetic multi-genred approach. Older, wiser, better looking and less inclined to take themselves seriously, the sound they create is increasingly sophisticated and designed for the dance floor.
Aside from the music itself The Correspondents have become renowned for their videos that are consistently unique in style and pioneering in technique. 'Fear and Delight', by visionary film-maker Naren Wilks, has had over 1.5 million views on youtube and won awards from the VMA and Berlin Music awards. Singer Mr Bruce has animated several music videos himself, with Well Measured Vice reached the front page of Reddit with its artistic virtuosity.
