THE IRREPRESSIBLES will be in concert at Het Depot on February the 16th. They are one of the acts of the Artefact festival, where they will present their new album NUDE, which will be released on January the 25th, to the belgian audience.
In 2010 a short film showcasing ‘In This Shirt’ by art-pop orchestra The Irrepressibles became an online phenomenon. Startling original, the stunning visuals and homoerotic imagery proved a pertinent introduction to one of the UK’s most innovative bands. This “enchantingly theatrical pop extravaganza” (SUNDAY TIMES) and accompanying album ‘Mirror Mirror’ played out to packed houses around the globe and garnered bountiful critical plaudits.
Now THE IRREPRESSIBLES return with a new album showcasing a new direction. This latest work combines dark electronica with organic orchestration and is – in their words – an attempt to explain “the rich complexity of life“. ”NUDE‘ is a raw, elements inspired work with a focus on the passing of time and memory. It is expansive and atmospheric in it’s orchestration with powerful melodies and iconoclastic arrangements that are both very European and in many ways American-iconic in style.
Album out on Jan the 25th through Rough Trade
Live show on Feb the 16th @ Het Depot, Leuven.
