STROUD music lovers are in for a treat this weekend as one of the UK’s best live acts takes to the stage at the Subscription Rooms this weekend.

The Telegraph included South London duo, the Correspondents, in their top 10 Highlights of Glastonbury for two consecutive years and lucky audience members will be able to witness their extraordinary stage show this Saturday at the popular historic venue.

Duo Mr Bruce and Chucks, who together form The Correspondents, collaborate to revamp vintage sounds for the modern ear.

Resuscitating sampled relics with squelchy synths over dusty drum loops they’ve depicted the trials and errors of Love, Lust and Loss over a foot-tapping toe curling amalgamation of Electro, Drum ‘n’ Bass, Swing and Boogie Woogie.

Singer Mr Bruce and producer Chucks both grew up in South London, and together have taken their high-octane genre-blending dance music from house parties to festival main stages.

The show sees monochrome clad Mr Bruce singing with force, scatting at speed and dancing like his life depends on it while Chucks takes the audience on a journey through a multitude of genres from jazz and blues to the nether regions of electro and drum’n’bass.

Their music releases are just as varied in style and influence.

Steve Lamaq said of their 2014 album Puppet Loosely Strung that “Every time I think I’ve deduced what they sound like they start sounding like something different”.

Aside from the music itself The Correspondents have become renowned for their videos that are consistently unique in aesthetic and pioneering in technique.

The band are renowned for making videos created by in-camera, hand made and analogue processes.

These range from meticulously hand drawn animations by Mr Bruce himself or collaborations with Naren Wilks who invented a ‘composite camera’ technique to describe a space in which synchronised multiples exist in a rotationally symmetric, kaleidoscopic dimension!

It won them a UK Music Video Award and Best Production at The Berlin Music Video Awards.
