We’ve been playing together for almost 3 years. It all came about through Dan (our singer) having some songs that he was keen to perform and all of us knowing each other separately through different musical situations.
Well most of us came straight out of playing in other successful island bands and as the kind of musicians we are we were looking to continue to challenge ourselves further, be it through songwriting, playing our instruments, or playing bigger and better shows.
We are always debating this question and even after every song we come up with a new response but recently we’ve been leaning towards Glam due our 70s influences and our preference for the dramatic.
Well That Dangerous Gentleman is an EP that took 5 days to record and we chose to record it at Skinny Mammoth Studios on the island. A decision we came to realise very quickly was a brilliant one not just because of the extremely top notch recording equipment but because of Stuart Fisher and Dave Waight’s understanding of our goals as a band in the studio and knowledge of arrangement and production. The process of recording though a challenge is one that we relish as a band and often flourish in as we have produced a product that we are truly proud of.
At the Isle of Wight festival last year we were extremely lucky to headline the very prestigious Hard Rock Rising stage on the Thursday which was the highlight of all of our playing careers.
Yeah its our first time and we are really excited to play. We have an amazing slot!
Hundreds of artists and bands applied through sending in a track and only six were accepted into the live final.
Very well, we had a blast!
The other performances were incredible displays of drastically different styles ranging from country to indie and beyond. Everyone played amazingly.
It was judged by representatives from the festival and independent record labels.
Well we’ve been getting a great response from playing our new single “There Goes My Dreams (Again)” live recently and we know having a big stage to jump around on will help them enjoy it too.
The Correspondents definitely, they’re always so exciting live and looking forward to seeing our good friends Plastic Mermaids perform.
Not by then but we are in the planning stages of a new video but we’ll keep that under our top hats for now.
We’ve got lots of great island festivals coming up over the summer that we will announce pretty soon and we are always working on new material.
We’d like to thank the readers of ULX music for supporting such great services as ULX as without the support of these great people bands like us would struggle to progress.
