Straight outta Cardiff, Welshman Pete Lawrie Winfield aka Until The Ribbon Breaks could well be the next man to occupy all of our musical obsessions. From a golden era when the mix-tape once reigned supreme, Until The Ribbon Breaks embraces an old school passion and cleverly weaves together his sounds, samples and lyrics, honed in with the production skills not unlike that of previous musical genre hopping masters and songwriters such as Beck, Prince, Primal Scream and Massive Attack.
Until The Ribbon Breaks is a force like no other. Sound and imagery sliced together, making it almost impossible not to get sucked into his universe, bursting with big beats, delicate lyricism, intricate harmonies and interesting layers, altogether offering a haze of gritty synth, piano, and other weirdly wonderful melodies. His debut track ‘Pressure’ offers a starkly cathartic rumination upon decay and alienation, with moments of primal seduction and lust, and like all of his material, the experience depends on the listener, but the feeling remains potent regardless of who you are.
The self-made video for ‘Pressure’ features edits from the David Lynch classic Lost Highway and quickly takes on a whole life of it’s own when accompanied with the urgency of Pete’s vocals and powerful instrumentals. It was this very video that sparked a tidal wave of interest and major intrigue amongst music fans, movie buffs and other curious communities online.
