MR BRUCE SHARES NEW SINGLE: “DARK AGE”

 

 

 

 

 

OUT NOW

+ PREPARES FOR FESTIVAL APPEARANCES AT GLASTONBURY, WOMAD & CAMP BESTIVAL

 

With Mr Bruce’s latest single he has successfully replicated the feeling of dancing with complete abandon after a long period of abstinence. I think most of us can sympathise with the sentiment.
 
Thanks to producer, Angus Kemp, “Dark Age,” is a shameless full fat tech house banger garnished with flamboyant lyrics that skip and twirl like a figure skater over punchy kick drums and a growling bassline.
 
Be warned, the chorus will happily reside in your frontal cortex and remind you of its presence at every available opportunity. And beware, the second half seemingly implodes and the growler of a bassline bites like a bear.
 
An anthem for a summer of hedonism which Mr Bruce will be unleashing live at multiple festival appearances including Glastonbury, Womad and Camp Bestival. Dates as follows:

The former frontman of The Correspondents, one of Britain’s most in-demand festival acts for a decade, went solo in spectacular style last year, unveiling a new sound which draws on decades of UK dance music, from tech house and jungle to garage and house.
 
On his debut EP RACE TO NOWHERE [PART ONE], Mr Bruce let loose as never before. Lyrically candid yet flamboyant in delivery, as honest as it is inventive and as theatrical as we’ve come to expect from the bendy-bodied performer, the five track mini-album tackles issues from climate crisis and the breakdown of his marriage in 2019. The release comes with 4 music videos (many of which have been animated by Mr Bruce) that have been picked up by multiple film festivals and are already scooping up awards. The wheels are definitely in motion for this multifaceted artist.
 
13 action packed years performing in The Correspondents came to an abrupt end in October 2020 with the sudden death of his bandmate Tim Cole (aka Chucks). The idea of performing was incredibly painful in the initial aftermath, but Mr Bruce steadily built back his energy to returned to the stage for a smattering of festivals in Summer 2021. He found the experience to be powerful and rewarding. The brand new stage show, featuring new choreography and some of his most flamboyant costumes to date, fuses together his latest material with a carefully selected handful of The Correspondents’ hits to create a unique and unparalleled live experience.
 
Mr Bruce has something to say, stand up and act upon, and is able to express his love for dance music and his understanding of heartbreak and loss with a deftness that he has acquired from more than a decade of writing hard hitting pop songs designed for the dance floor.
 
Taking his latest creations to live spaces across the UK on a tour earlier in 2022, the dates proved to be a boundary-pushing experience for artist and audience. Further live dates and festival shows now follow this Summer.
