THE IRREPRESSIBLES return with heartfelt single in ‘Transformation of Acceptance

Renowned British composer and singer-songwriter, Jamie Irrepressible, known by the moniker “THE IRREPRESSIBLES,” has unveiled exciting updates about an unexpected EP titled Self Love & Acceptance. The EP’s features the track, ‘Transformation of Acceptance’, which was released on September 27th, with the full EP set to illuminate our ears on October 2nd, 2023. This forthcoming EP serves as a prelude to a unique UK tour taking place this Autumn. Collectively amassing an impressive three billion streams combined, his unique brand of cathartic orchestral-pop has cemented Jamie as one of Britain’s most talented musical exports, garnering collaborations with electronic artists such as Royskopp, Rex The Dog, and ionalee.

‘Transformation of Acceptance’ captivates listeners with its enchanting piano melodies harmonizing seamlessly with Jamie‘s exquisite and emotional vocals. The song begins with a tender and intimate pace, gradually evolving into a graceful euphony of strings and bass, ultimately delivering Jamie‘s profound message of self-acceptance and the liberation it bestows. This introspective and uplifting piece serves as a beautiful reflection of Jamie‘s inner narrative and personal journey.

Speaking about the track, Jamie had this to say, “‘Transformation of Acceptance’ is about how we learn the reasons for our issues with self esteem and then learn how to love ourselves as we would love ourselves if we were our own child. Learning to love ourselves with unconditional love which becomes the new foundation, the new roots, of the tree from which we can grow and blossom as a person.”

Chillwave music producer ford. Shared stripped-down piano performance video

Grammy-nominated indie-electronic music producer ford. has unveiled a new ‘Bedroom Reprise’ version of his track ‘4:38am’, featuring Brooklyn based artist Barrie, out now.

Combining delicate piano chords with Barrie’s hushed vocals, the Bedroom Reprise’ version of ‘4:38am’ is a sparse, stripped-back take that further accentuates the track’s understated beauty. The touching accompanying video sees the pair performing the track in two separate locations in the confines of a warmly-lit studio and bedroom. First appearing on ford.’s acclaimed recent album The Color of Nothing, the original has already amassed more than 4 million Spotify streams.

‘4:38am’ (Bedroom Reprise) is the first release from ford.’s forthcoming companion package, The Color of Nothing (Reprise). Out May 18th, the new package includes five remixes, two new stripped-back versions and two brand-new tracks “thursday drive” and mid-day [Focus Piece]”.

“I’ve always found a sense of peace and solace when working late at night,” ford. explains. “It allows me to cultivate this state of constant motivation when writing music that only exists in those hours. I wanted to do an acoustic for 4:38am as a way to provide a different perspective on the song and strip it down to its bare essentials in the same way that working in those late hours strips back my inhibitions when writing music.

He continues: “I remember building out this version soon after the album dropped and sending it off to Barrie to see if she was interested in the idea. She sent back some new vocals that felt even more intimate and personal than the original. A couple months later I drove out to LA for a road trip and ended up filming the piano parts, while Barrie filmed her parts in NY.”

At just 21 years of age, ford. has caught the attention as one of the brightest crossover stars with major streaming hits such as “Bedford Falls” and “Craving.”  He’s also produced remixes for major acts including Bearson, Ashe and Kasbo – resulting in a colossal 55 million streams and over one million monthly listeners. The producer extraordinaire has been championed by major tastemakers including Billboard, Complex, Dancing Astronaut, UPROXX, FAULT,  and Acid Stag. He’s landed a coveted Coachella set and in-demand tours with some of the biggest names on the scene including Madeon, Jai Wolf and Maribou State. He also received a Grammy nomination for his remix of Mild Minds’ “SWIM”.

The first release from ford.’s forthcoming project, the ‘Bedroom Reprise’ version of ‘4:38am’ perfectly captures the beauty of the young artist’s music. This fall, ford. will have two co-headliner shows with Elderbrook in Vancouver and Seattle, along with a slot at Life Is Beautiful, and more US shows to be announced soon.
