The Correspondents – “Fear & Delight”

5050580607095.170x170-75The Correspondents are an electronic band from London. They are composed of two people that go by the names of DJ Chucks, who supplies the music, and Mr. Bruce, who sings.  They formed in 2007 and performed at Glastonbury in 2010, where critics named them as one of the top ten acts that year. Their music is upbeat, electronic, and incredibly dance inspired, and even has some eighties and nineties influences. I hear bits and pieces of Pet Shop Boys and Depeche Mode in the vocals and the overall tone of the music, especially in their song “Alarm Call,” and it’s something I absolutely love. They can be deep and personal as well as fun and exuberant, as seen in their song “Fear & Delight.” It’s jumpy, bouncy beats and quirky lyrics give the song a feeling of joy and vitality. And, to top it all off, the music video is absolutely fantastic. “Fear & Delight” is from The Correspondents’ debut album Puppet Loosely Strung, which was released in 2013.
