Description

The Irresistible Urges band is an Edinburgh based international gigging band, performance and recording collective. The album was always going to be titled “2020:Visions” even before the pandemic. “2020” in the sense of clear vision. The year before the band performed at and produced several benefits for causes close to our hearts promoting mutual aid. The album began to take place with recording sessions with the gigging ensemble and contributions from some of our friends. The record was to have been finished early in 2020, then the pandemic intervened delaying the record for months.

These 10 original songs reflect much hard work done during those months to finish the project. Whatever lies ahead, and however the year ends, the band will never forget “2020:Visions”. We hope you feel the same.
