Biography

(2003 – present)

The Irrepressibles is an art-pop collective founded and led by composer and musician Jamie McDermott. Created in 2003, the band have released two full studio albums to date and 5 EPs, with a further 6th slated for release in 2014.

On the January 11, 2010, The Irrepressibles released their debut studio album, Mirror Mirror, a collection of 12 baroque pop songs produced by Dimitri Tikovoi and William Turner Duffin, and written by Jamie McDermott. The album features the single “In This Shirt”. Mirror Mirror received critical acclaim. The Guardian called it “theatrical and very different, a ripe, colourful riposte to all that is Cowell” and The Independent described it as “a dramatic soundscape dripping with echoes of the Weimar Republic and la belle époque.”

“In This Shirt” garnered critical and public acclaim after it was used as the soundtrack for short film, The Lady Is Dead, by Israeli production company PAG Films, described by Sundance Channel as “fantastic”.

In November 2012, The Irrepressibles released their second album, Nude. Self-produced by Jamie McDermott, the album similarly received critical acclaim. The Quietus described it as “remarkably varied and unpredictable album” stating that “the results border on the spectacular”. The Independent gave it 4 out of 5 stars, calling it “an act of bravery in a cowardly world” and “swaddled in the most beautiful musical finery”.
