Last October 2013, The Irrepressibles released the first of the three EPs titled Nude : Landscapes, which moves from intensely emotional minimalism to symphonic landscapes. The band then took to the road across the UK, Europe and the U.S. performing intimate sets in beautiful locations – Jamie’s crooner to counter tenor voice surrounded by piano, acoustic guitar, violin, and cello with loop pedals.
The forthcoming EP, Nude : Viscera, 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.
Their debut album Mirror Mirror
(2010) (featuring the seminal track “In This Shirt”) received much critical acclaim internationally and is now considered a must-have album in the baroque pop genre.
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 premiere at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in NYC in November 2013.
The eroticism and magic of the sound is overwhelming… dangerous, scintillating music, fluid as mercury
– The Guardian
an act of bravery in a cowardly world… emotionally bare it may often be, but Nude is swaddled in the most beautiful musical finery –The Independent
