Jamie Irrepressible finally returns, after a 6-year hiatus of collaborations, with a third album from his creative guise TheIrrepressibles. 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, aswell 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 audiovisualshow that lives up to the band's reputation as leaders in livespectacle. 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 workas an artist; including two critically acclaimed albums (MirrorMirror 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 NakedDesign Records.
