The Irrepressibles have been heralded as one of Britain’s best-kept secrets, compared to the likes of early Bowie, Kate Bush and Anthony & The Johnsons – their unique blend of theatrical pop and lo-fi is winning them fans all over the place.
And they are certain to get more fans as their latest single is accompanied by a delectable selection of remixes from Hercules & Love Affair, Royksoop and Zero 7.
Fusing European orchestration with pop melodies and soaring cathartic vocals, the intensely intimate ‘In Your Shirt’ is a beautifully constructed sonic exploration through The Irrepressibles’ mystical and theatrical world.
The all star cast of remixers each re-sculpt the track in inimitable style. Hercules & The Love Affair strip it down to let Jamie McDermott’s vocals soar to the backing of a plump melodic house beats.
Royksopp harness the song’s grandeur with a cinematic vision with a awe-inspiring 10 minute remix which takes you on journey of soft synths, grand melodies and enchanting vocals.
Zero 7 soften it out with mellifluous synths and organic drum lines to finish the remix package with a beautifully crafted remix.
