I discovered The Irrepressibles on a dull summer's day a few years ago when they were doing a performance at the Pump House in Battersea Park, London. I heard Jamie McDermott's voice from afar and was drawn across the park to see who it was. The group were all dressed in black and silver costumes with amazing make up and hair. Not only were they singing and playing amazingly, they were PERFORMING and creating a mesmerizing piece of art that the audience was completely drawn into.

The last time I experienced anything approaching this was when Kate Bush released Wuthering Heights in the 70's . . . I just hadn't heard anything like it before. On hearing The Irrepressibles I knew I had stumbled upon something very, very special.
I have since been to many of their performances, seeing them in intimate and in vast surroundings . . . and they delight every time.

They seamlessly fuse orchestration with pop melodies and soaring cathartic vocals. The album Mirror Mirror is a wonderfully emotive and enchanting collection of their work revealing surprises at every turn.

I can understand the comparisons with early David Bowie and Kate Bush or Antony and the Johnsons but they really don't do them any justice . . . The Irrepressibles are unique, exciting and so much more.

I strongly recommend you have a listen. Gems like this don't come along often.

Nigel, London

Format: Audio CD
I've always been partial to a good falsetto and
Jamie McDermot has a particularly nifty one.
(His vibrato is pretty stunning at times too!)

He also leads a delectable ensemble of talented
musicians whose capacity to give life to his
musical imaginings is quite breathtaking.

The twelve pieces on this recording are all
atmospherically realised dramas which are so
beguiling in their complexity that it is impossible
not to get sucked (hook line and sinker!) into
their magical narratives and sonic landscapes.

Mr McDermot clearly knows what he is about.
His refined musical intelligence and compositional
know-how point to a well-absorbed academic past.

The Irrepressibles is an entirely apt name for the band.
The energy and dynamism expended by all concerned
creates a thoroughly uplifting listening experience.

There is no waste matter here whatsoever.

The plaintive voice on the captivating
'In Your Eyes' is utterly stunning!
The limpid string and woodwind arrangement equally so.
Comparisons with Antony Hegarty are inevitable
and not unwarrented but that which makes Mr McDermot
different is spectacularly and uniquely his own!

The haunting, nocturnal world of 'I'll Maybe Let You'
is a strangely disturbing soundscape. Skittering
percussion, uneasy violin and Craig White's dream-like
cor anglais intervention all keep our nerves nicely on edge.

The spirit of Aaron Copland seems to have touched the
inspiration underpinning 'Anvil'. The bouncing rhythmic
structure and vibrant string part brought the composer's
'Appalachian Spring' to mind on more than one occasion.

I bought The Irrepressibles' EP "From the Circus to the Sea" on the strength of catching their last song at the Latitude Festival last year and realising that I'd missed an absolute treat. The EP didn't disappoint and this album is also excellent. I've since seen them perform at the Queen Elizabeth Hall (on Valentine's Day), which was an amazing spectacle. This CD captures the beautiful orchestral arrangements and Jamie McDermott's unique voice. 'In This Shirt' is my favourite track but I cherish them all. Highly recommended.

Any track that has been used for a TV advert is immediately tarnished, and any artist who agrees to their music being sold to advertisers rightly has their artistic integrity brought into question, and In This Shirt probably will become a bit of an albatross to The Irrepressibles. Having said that, this album is worth buying on the basis of its final track alone. The trembling falsetto and introspective lyrics will naturally draw comparisons with Antony and the Johnsons, but this is a track which is of another place. It reminds me of 'Eat Yourself' by Goldfrapp in its ability to make you feel like you have been seriously affected by listening to it. The lyrics are incredibly sad yet full of hope, and the ethereal strings and synthesisers are just beautiful. The rest of the album is certainly worth listening to, and will grow on you, but it is In This Shirt which will make you know you haven't wasted your money.
