The Correspondents have made quite the name for themselves on the live scene, making numerous appearances at some of the UK’s biggest festivals and have twice bagged themselves a spot on the Telegraph’s Top Ten Highlights from Glastonbury – but they have yet to release an album, until now. The quirky duo have announced the release of their debut LP, ‘Puppet Loosely Strung’ on 10th March.
Ahead of the release, the twosome have released a couple of brilliant singles, both of which come accompanied with stunning visuals – they both come highly recommended.
‘Puppet Loosely Strung’ is the long-awaited culmination of years of musical experience from the exceptionally talented duo, consisting of producer, Chucks, and singer, Mr Bruce. Those lucky enough to have witnessed their inimitable live show will be fully aware of the high voltage performances the pair are capable of. Their live sets are constantly evolving as they leap through a multitude of genres, tapping a history of dance music from jazz and blues to electro and drum ‘n’ bass.

‘Puppet Loosely Strung’ sees the charismatic duo develop this unique sound that has garnered them so much acclaim on the live circuit and reveals the fascinating, multifaceted nature of their music. While a handful of tracks on the LP feature regularly on the group’s tried and tested set list, including firm fan favourite ‘Well Measured Vice’, the other half of the album exposes another side of The Correspondents – one that is more introspective, contrasting with the highly-energetic, drum and bass inspired sound that thrills audiences worldwide.
‘Puppet Loosely Strung´ is bold, vast, emotional, dance-worthy and cinematic – all in equal measure. The long wait for this debut is finally over and with this release, The Correspondents prove themselves to be one of the most extraordinary bands of the moment.
