More than a decade into a very colourful career The Correspondents continue to surprise and astound with their genre-defying dance music and whirlwind live performances that have taken them round the world accruing an ever growing cult following.

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 trials and tribulations of love, lust and social ills. Chucks takes the crowd on a musical journey from the retro sounds of the Swing Era to Blues and 60s Soul, and then out the other end into Electro, Hip Hop and Drum’n’Bass. Their legendary life shows have earned them The Telegraph’s Glastonbury Highlight two years in a row.

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’, a collaboration with visionary film-maker Naren Wilks, has had over 4 million views on youtube and won awards from the VMA and Berlin Music Video awards. Singer Mr Bruce is himself an award winning animator and filmmaker and has turned his hand to several music videos for the band over the years with astounding hand drawn and hand painted techniques.

“Every time I think I’ve deduced what The Correspondents sound like they start sounding like something different”
– Steve Lamacq (BBC6 Music)
