Previous praise:

“The eroticism and magic of the sound is overwhelming… dangerous, scintillating music, fluid as mercury.” The Guardian

“An act of bravery in a cowardly world… emotionally bare it may often be, but Nude is swaddled in the most beautiful musical finery.” The Independent

After their sold out show in December The Irrepressibles return to The Forge, Camden, to perform their acclaimed intimate show Nude : Landscapes for two consecutive nights: Wednesday 17th February and Thursday 18th February.

Recently collaborating and touring as vocalist for Royksopp and creating his third record in Berlin, vocalist/composer Jamie Irrepressible comes to London to present intimate re-workings of songs from The Irrepressibles albums ‘Nude’ and ‘Mirror Mirror,’ interspersed with new rearrangements of songs by some of Jamie’s heroes – to be revealed on the night.  Expect piano, acoustic guitar, violin and cello – expanding with loop pedal into powerful intricate arrangements that soundscape Jamie’s intensely confessional song writing and sky-scraping voice.

These will also be very special performances as the band will be recording the shows live in front of the audience to form part of a live album, to be released later this year together with their forthcoming third studio record.

Gigslutz Premiere Tadhg Daly

We’re delighted to be working with singer songwriter Tadhg Daly, and his debut EP out March 25.

The lead single, Control Yourself is now premiering at Gigslutz

Gigslutz

Head over to watch the video: http://www.gigslutz.co.uk/premiere-tadhg-daly-unleashes-bluesy-new-track-control-yourself/ 

Inspired by artists like Kurt Cobain, Burt McCracken (The Used) Chadwick Stokes (Dispatch / State Radio) Jeff Buckley, The Tallest Man on Earth, and Matt Corby the 4-track EP was recorded in Gilbert O’sullivan’s Frobisher Drive studios in Jersey and covers an important time in Tadhg’s life. “For me, this EP represents overcoming some personal issues and dealing with the fear and pressure to “wake up” and become the person I feel I was supposed to be.”

The result? A compelling slice of bluesy alt rock, armed with killer hooks, immense soulful vocals, and mature, honest song writing. Highlights include the bluesy riffs of the addictive lead single ‘Control Yourself,’ a heartfelt and frank look into redemption and the struggle with temptation. “It’s about living in a world that seems to constantly throw temptation at you, often at the worst possible times,” says 22-year-old Tadhg. And don’t miss the accompanying video shot in Jersey, which like the song itself is dark, brooding and full of emotion.

Elsewhere there’s the powerful opener ‘Don’t Tell Me’ inspired by a trip to Taghazout, Morocco (hence the title of the EP) and featuring some stellar backing vocals from his younger sister, Aine. Next, the classic sounding ‘Without You, I’m Alone,’ which he’s happy to leave open to interpretation. This song has a million different meanings for me. They change every time I play it”. And finally there’s ‘Lower The Sound’  Tadhg’s message on not letting the oppressive elements of everyday life hold you back.

Born and raised in Jersey with Irish heritage (Tadhg is Gaelic for Tim), music has always been part of Tadhg’s life. Although he’d played around with the guitar from an early age, it was after hearing ‘Nevermind’ by Nirvana he began to look at music more seriously and began penning his own songs. After some time studying music in London, Tadhg soon returned to Jersey, missing the beach, the outdoors and the surfing. “There is a lot of natural inspiration in the islands that is harder to get in the mainland. And it definitely helps shape my sound.” Inspired once again by these natural surroundings, embryonic songs that he’d started writing in London, suddenly came to life and he set about building a band around him.

Tadhg released his debut single, ‘Learn To Live,’ in early 2015, helping him achieve New & Noteworthy status by iTunes. The last couple of years he’s been busy playing live across London and Jersey. He’s been booked as main support for artists like Natty and The Hoosiers and last summer played numerous UK festivals including Boomtown Fair, Isle of Wight Festival and Folklore Festival amongst others. Tadgh returns to the UK this March for a collection of joint live dates with fellow Channel Islander and iTunes Blues Chart No1 artist Robert J Hunter. Dates currently confirmed include:

 

17th Feb – George Tavern, London

12th March – Flying Circus, Newark

18th March – Rogue Saint, Lincoln

19th March – The Shed, Leicester

Kerri Watt Returns

Wild Front Cover (Medium)

Really excited to confirm the beautiful Kerri Watt returns this March with her brand new single, The Wild.

This is the follows up to her BBC Radio 2 A-listed record ‘Long Way Home.’

Produced once again by Embrace’s Richard McNamara, it’s a big song, with big production and continues to showcase Kerri as a major new UK talent.

It’s a song about falling in love,” says Kerri. “About letting go of bad past experiences and getting lost in the moment and letting yourself be vulnerable again.”

And don’t miss the stunning new video, filmed in Iceland, a fitting location for the song’s title. Kerri: “Iceland was unbelievable, the landscapes are like a fairy tale. I wanted to recreate what had been in my head when I wrote the song, whilst incorporating real elements of the wild and I think we’ve done both perfectly. I like that it’s about a journey, but not specifically a romantic one…”

‘The Wild’ follows an amazing 2015 for the Scottish singer songwriter, who finally crossed over into the mainstream with her last single, ‘Long Way Home.’ The track rocketed onto BBC Radio 2’s A list, and helped her nab her first national TV performance on ITV’s Weekend Show.

She’s had critical acclaim everywhere from the Daily Telegraph, The Sun, Notion, Glamour Magazine, to Attitude Magazine, Music Week and Record of the Day amongst many others. She also hit Number 1 on Hype Machine with the remix of her single ‘You’ and won over crowds across last summer’s festivals including Isle of Wight, The Great Escape, Secret Garden Party and Glastonbury.

She can now add Nina Nesbitt, Ward Thomas, Starsailor, Mike & The Mechanics and The Overtones to her impressive live support list, with more big tour supports on the cards for this spring – details to be announced.

All eyes are now on the next 12 months, a big year for Kerri. After ‘The Wild’ she’s hoping to spend the summer playing more festivals, she’s already recorded the follow up single and she’ll finally be recording her debut album with Richard McNamara, plus she’s planning her own headline tour for the autumn.
