The Irrepressibles - Mirror Mirror

At long last, the flamboyant, fantastical, and unfathomable Irrepressibles will release their debut album, Mirror Mirror digitally in America on August 9, followed by a special edition of the album October 25 featuring exclusive remixes from Röyksopp, Hercules & Love Affair and Zero 7 amongst others.

Led by creative lead vocalist Jamie McDermott, the 10-piece performance orchestra has already earned comparisons to early David Bowie, Kate Bush, Anthony & The Johnsons and even Bonzo Dog Do Dah Band.

On Mirror Mirror, the band has created an unparalleled album that fuses European orchestration with pop melodies and soaring cathartic vocals. From the dramatic opener “My Friend Jo” to the galloping rhythms of “Anvil”; from the yearning echoes of “Forget The Past” through to the intensely intimate “In This Shirt”, Mirror Mirror is a beautifully constructed sonic exploration depicting Jamie McDermott's confessional stories of love, anger, lust and loss with a journey through The Irrepressibles’ mystical and theatrical world.
