The Correspondents are a DJ and MC duo. They have had the sometimes dubious distinction of being named the UK's top unsigned band while simultaneously becoming one of the countries best live acts. Last year they played on the Saturday night Bestival main-stage to 25,000 people broadcast live on Channel 4 TV. They featured on Rob da Bank's BBC Radio 1 two-hour Electro Swing special. They have gigged up and down the UK almost every weekend for 3 years and have amassed a huge and loyal following on Facebook and more.
They have gained, as you would expect, massive press support with national feature articles from The Independent, The Telegraph and more under their belts and many more expected. Despite all this, the band themselves remain resolutely 'independent' in spirit.
"What's Happened To Soho?" is their debut official release. Its 6 tracks hint at many possible future directions. It refuses to give in to the pressure to create a 'typical' electro-swing product (as one might expect of the genre which they helped define and from which they are the first break-out act). The EP is instead, a mini-concept in itself with a beginning, middle and end, which is intended to be listened to from start to finish and references numerous different genres along the way while settling on none.
