The Guardian called it "theatrical and very different, a ripe, colourful riposte to all that is Cowell" and The Independent described it as "a dramatic soundscape dripping with echoes of the Weimar Republic and la belle époque." "In This Shirt" garnered critical and public acclaim after it was used as the soundtrack for short film, The Lady Is Dead, by Israeli production company PAG Films, described by Sundance Channel as "fantastic". In November 2012, The Irrepressibles released their second album, Nude. Self-produced by Jamie McDermott, the album similarly received critical acclaim. The Quietus described it as "remarkably varied and unpredictable album" stating that "the results border on the spectacular". The Independent gave it 4 out of 5 stars, calling it "an act of bravery in a cowardly world" and "swaddled in the most beautiful musical finery". 2013 saw the release of Nude : Landscapes, the first of three EPs inspired by - and expanding on - the band's second album.
This first EP saw the band take a "minimal symphonic" and "acoustic" direction, as described by McDermott in an interview with QX Magazine. The second EP, Nude : Viscera, released on the February 14, 2014, "brings together influences from New Wave, Grunge, and Exotica". The third EP, Nude : Forbidden, is yet to be released. The Irrepressibles have been remixed by various artists including Iamamiwhoami, Röyksopp, Hercules & Love Affair and Zero 7. Jamie McDermott has also provided guest vocals for Rex The Dog's single "Do You Feel What I Feel" and in 2013 on Röyksopp's single "Something in My Heart", credited as 'Jamie Irrepressible'.
