Combining dark electronica with organic orchestration, the anticipated second album of The Irrepressibles, "Nude", is expansive and atmospheric in it's orchestration with powerful melodies and iconoclastic arrangements. On their 2010 debut album, "Mirror Mirror", the group carved a new frontier in pop with their influence seen on much of today's music scene. The Irrepressibles fuse classical orchestration, grunge rock, kitsch, exotica, electronica, sound art, jazz, samba, and folk into a heady and emotional style of music that is created instinctively, playfully and cathartically by J.R.McDermott.
'Enchantingly theatrical pop extravaganza.' --Sunday Times
'Two years after grabbing the world's attention with their homoerotic short film for 'This Shirt', The Irrepressibles return with their second studio album, their most adventurous project yet. The 10-piece orchestral outfit take full advantage of their diverse instrumental roster, with delicate strings and some apocalyptic crescendos. Nude deserves your full attention.' --Max Baker, Attitude Magazine * * * *
'...some of his band's finest work. The title is deceptive: emotionally bare it may often be, but Nude is swaddled in the most beautiful musical finery.' --Simon Price, The Independent
