Jamie Irrepressible finally returns, after a 6-year hiatus of
collaborations, with a third album from his creative guise The
Irrepressibles. Titled Superheroes the new sonic work takes
cues from the Prog, Kraut-Rock and Electronica movements
which influenced him during his time recently living in Berlin, as
well as in his teenage years. Superheroes is a fantasy concept
album about the boy within us that always remains, learns to
heal, and eventually falls in love. The album tells the story of a
poignant and heroic homosexual love.
Live the band will bring the album to life with an audiovisual
show that lives up to the band's reputation as leaders in live
spectacle. Comprised of 8 multi-instrumentalists on analog
synthesizers, electric drums, live kit, percussion, choir, strings,
and brass. Visually the show features work by a whole gamut of
directors and AV collaborators including Joel Ryan McDermott,
Alexey Romanowsky, Darin Tufani, and Savvas Stavrou whose
music video for the track Submission received accolades at the
European Independent Film Festival 2019.
Superheroes follows Jamie’s impressively eclectic body of work
as an artist; including two critically acclaimed albums (Mirror
Mirror 2010, Nude 2012) that were seminal works in the recent
Chamber Pop and LGBTQ movements. Jamie’s distinct vocals
have led to collaborations in electronic music with like-minded
creatives such as ionnalee (2018) and touring and recording
with Norwegian electronic duo Royksopp on the album The
Inevitable End (2014).
Superheroes is released on the 20th March 2020 on Of Naked
Design Records.
