THE IRREPRESSIBLES

plus guests

The Irrepressibles are the Art-Pop orchestra created by artist / composer / vocalist / multi-instrumentalist Jamie Irrepressible. Their debut album Mirror Mirror (2010) featuring the seminal In This Shirt received much critical acclaim internationally and is now considered a must have album in the baroque pop genre.

Their sophomore album the homo-iconic record Nude (2013) fused modern electronica and orchestration with a dark retro aesthetic and has expanded the bands international fan base to the Americas, Eastern Europe and Asia with its boldness and beautiful honesty described by The Independent as “an act of bravery in a cowardly world” and applauded critically world wide.

The Irrepressibles have collaborated or have been remixed by Royksopp, iamamiwhoami, Hercules and Love Affair, and even created music for Danish company Hotel Pro Forma’s touring, and now award winning opera, War Sum Up which toured Europe and recently had its US premier at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in NYC in November 2013..

In October 2013 The Irrepressibles released the first of three EPs expanding on their second studio album Nude, titled Nude : Landscapes the first EP moves from intensely emotional minimalism to symphonic landscapes. The band then took to the road across the UK, Europe and the US performing intimate sets in beautiful locations – Jamie’s crooner to counter tenor voice surrounded by piano, acoustic guitar,
violin, and cello with loop pedals.

Next The Irrepressibles will resound with the sexually charged second work Nude : Viscera. Released internationally on the Mon 27 Jan 2014 the EP brings together influences from New Wave, Grunge, and Exotica into a darkly sensual and at times playfully chaotic mix. Initial comparisons have been made to the later works of Jeff Buckley, Lou Reed, Yma Sumac and early works of PJ Harvey. In March 2014 the band will take to the road, performing this visceral homo-iconic mini-album with a series of intimate standing rock club shows.
