Savvas Stavrou's video for The Irrepressibles features two men locked in a where desire, sport, violence and lust are wrapped into their powerful wrestler's embrace.

The track Submission, the first single from The Irrepressibles' third album, discusses how when we fall in love we have to submit to it and how when it ends it destroys us, like the French saying ’la petite mort’ or ‘the little death’. It features the voice of US-born gay indie alt-country artist Jon Campbell in duet with Jamie Irrepressible, and Stavrou's stark video encapsulates the two meanings of this French saying with scenes of intense visceral physicality between the two men.
