Dublin’s newest and most exciting musical collaboration comes to us courtesy of brother and sister team Cars Love Girls.

The band features Bres (guitars, vocals) and Orla (vocals), who first worked together for many successful years as part of the Republic of Loose, knocking out two top ten albums in the process. As a founding member of the Loose, Bres co-wrote some of the bands hit singles (YOU KNOW IT, COMEBACK GIRL, THE STEADY SONG, I LIKE MUSIC).

Orla joined as a female vocalist in 2006, while also working hard behind the scenes in the music industry. They toured together extensively in Europe and the U.S, even landing a historical supporting slot with U2 on their 360 tour in Croke Park, Ireland.

Following their career with the Republic of Loose, Bres and Orla put their musical Midas touch to work on an independent project. Combining their shared love of Retro R’n’B and Pop, the duo’s sound developed from a vast array of influences including Prince, Prefab Sprout, Hall & Oates, The Time and Steely Dan.

The product of their efforts has resulted in their breakthrough debut album SKIP SCHOOL, which is a delicious contemporary bite of old school R’n’B.

The 10 track collection was recorded and mixed in Dublin with Phil Hayes (Bell X1, Delorentos), and final touches provided by one of the most prominent names in mastering Bernie Grundman (Carol King’s “Tapestry”, Steely Dan’s “Aja”, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, Prince’s “Purple Rain”).

Stay tuned for adventures in audio wonderment as you are cordially invited to SKIP SCHOOL with Cars Love Girls.
