Republic Of Loose – This Is The Tomb Of The Juice

Republic Of Loose are a five piece from Dublin who have already had gongs lavished upon them for their debut Irish single ‘Girl I’m Gonna Fuck You Up’. They have a sound that, by their own admission, is heavily influenced by Rick James, The Rolling Stones and Michael Jackson. The lazy funked up bass and the rock flourishes that run through ‘This Is The Tomb Of The Juice’ carry a good time vibe but with menacing overtones. Vocally this album features smooth harmonies, floating falsettos and earthy bass bringing added variety and depth. Republic Of Loose are as if the Ink Spots had been orchestrated by Isaac Hayes and (a young) Mick Jagger.


The nest single to be taken from this album is ‘Hold Up!’ – out 2 July (Ireland)/5 July (UK).

Not satisfied with supporting Scissor Sisters, Alabama 3 and Fun Lovin’ Criminals – Republic of Loose are headlining some shows in June 04,
