At The Mike Stand with Glen Power (The Script).

The Republic of Loose

Even were Mick Pyro, Benjamin Loose, Brez, Deco, Orla La and the rest of the Republic of Loose dove-like birds that raced, carried and cooed their way through life, it’d still be nigh on impossible to pigeonhole them into any exact musical species.
