Republic Of Loose – Hold Up!

Irish funk rockers Republic Of Loose are releasing a sequel to their last single (only released in Ireland) ‘Girl I’m Gonna Fuck You Up’. Vocally ‘Hold Up!’ reeks of angry youth; this is somewhat at odds with the laid back music that accompanies them. The Republic of Loose sound lends itself to comparison with bands like Red Hot Chilli Peppers, but only in their subdued moments.
