Republica dominated the charts in the Nineties and exploded back in 2013 with a new EP, UK
tour and festival slots. The band's iconic and fiery frontwoman, Saffron, Tim Dorney (keyboard),
Johnny Male (guitar) and Conor Lawrence (drums) rode the Britpop wave of female-fronted rock
bands like Sleeper, Elastica, Garbage and Lush, injecting it with their self-dubbed "techno-pop,
punk rock" sound. Between 1996 and 1999, Republica sold an incredible 3 million albums and
clinched Top 5 slots in the UK, America and Europe with platinum sales across the globe, while
their hit single Ready to Go soared to Number One in 18 countries.
The band has never really been away, with their music becoming the soundtrack to the past few
decades - Ready to Go featured on more than 300 films and adverts and Wes Craven selected
their hit single, Drop Dead Gorgeous for the soundtrack to his hit movie Scream and invited them
to perform at its Hollywood premiere.
With her unique sound and iconic image, it is only natural
that Saffron has been in demand from a host of the world's biggest music acts, including The
Prodigy, who used her vocals on Fuel My Fire from their critically-acclaimed Fat of the Land
album. Saffron also worked with The Cure on single Just Say Yes; collaborated with Junkie XL f
or his 2003 album Radio JXL: A Broadcast from the Computer Hell Cabin and scored a number
one dance single with him; she duetted with Gary Numan, recorded Pork-u-Pine with Jeff Beck f
or his album, Jeff; worked with DJ Carl Cox on Get What You Paid 4 and also worked with artists
including Jah Wobble - who wrote World of You for her - N-Joi - performing on their hit, Anthem -
Mark Moore, St Etienne and The Shamen.
And in April 2013, the band returned with the release of their eagerly-awaited ‘Christiana Obey’
EP and sold out UK tour. The new material is a welcome return to the gritty, electronica sound
which set them apart from fellow Britpop titans, Republica performed at many festivals tlast
summer including The Isle of Wight, Norway, Germany etc. to share the well-loved tunes that
won the hearts of the nation, as well as this exciting, new material.
