The new single from The Correspondents, Fear and Delight, is out today via From Our Own. The release proceeds next year’s March launch of their debut album, Puppet Loosely Strung. The duo have become renowned for their live shows and have been included in The Telegraph’s “Top Ten Glastonbury Highlights” for the past two years. Producing alternative pop-fueled catchy anthems, Fear and Delight is a continuation of their unique sound. Take a look behind the scenes of their latest music video with exclusive footage.
With a chorus that encourages audiences to overcome doubts, the new single demonstrates Chucks’ production abilities as he mixes driving basslines with dynamic drum sequences and glitchy electro breakdowns. Meanwhile, Mr Bruce’s vocals weigh up the dangers of entering a relationship that has the potential to be both exciting and destructive.
The Correspondents have spent the last four years touring, performing in front of crowds of up to 12,000. Aside from travelling the world the pair have been working on their debut album which has evolved over time through their live sets, combining a multitude of genres from jazz and blues to electro and drum ’n’ bass. Together, producer Chucks and singer Mr Bruce have condensed their accumulation of musical knowledge into a collection they are satisfied with in their forthcoming Puppet Loosely Strung.
Fear and Delight is accompanied by a curious video that examines the limits of a new technique in filmmaking, pioneered by an emerging director. Naren Wilks describes his process as using “composited camera” (multiple cameras acting as one), to depict the same action from different viewpoints. Through combining the footage, Wilks is able to create a space in which synchronised multiples exist in a rotationally symmetric, kaleidoscopic dimension.
