U.K. band Until the Ribbon Breaks continues their genre-bending musical masterpieces with the release of a four-tracked EP, The Other Ones, Tuesday via Casablanca Records. With an infectious opening track, ‘A Taste of Silver,’ brooding ballad ‘Goldfish,’ dance-worthy ‘Spark,’ and thoughtful reverie of the eponymous ‘Until the Ribbon Breaks,’ The Other Ones has quickly climbed to number 7 in the iTunes electronic chart. The U.S EP is available now on both iTunes and Spotify.
During SXSW Festival 2014, Until the Ribbon Breaks drew packed crowds at multiple showcases, including SPIN House, Chop Shop, NYLON Magazine, Universal Music Group, The British Music Embassy, ATC Showcase and a headline appearance at Dickies Roadhouse. They were also featured in the Austin 100, NPR Music’s downloadable 100-song sampler of the not-to-be-missed SXSW 2014 bands.
The trio – led by visionary producer and visual artist Pete Lawrie-Winfield (lead vox, keys, percussion, brass), James Wolujewicz (synths) and Elliot Wall (drums) – also just completed a North American tour with Spanish alt-band Delorean.
As with their other debuts, Until the Ribbon Breaks marries music and images with a self-made music video. Created by Pete, a former student of film, the video features clips from Timothy Linh Bui’s 2009 “Blue Powder” set to the music of the new track ‘A Taste of Silver.’
Until the Ribbon Break’s debut EP was met with critical acclaim, and the band continues to make waves with skillfully woven sounds, samples, and lyrics through their innovative “re-imaginations” of various original tracks, including Sam Smith’s ‘Nirvana’ and Lorde’s ‘Royals’ (with whom they toured last year).
