British trio Until The Ribbon Breaks will release their eagerly awaited debut album A Lesson Unlearnt on 15th June 2015, following its US release in Jan 2015.
It not everyday that a band go from jamming in Wales to touring the US and Australia with London Grammar, being the favourite new band of agit-rap Gods Run The Jewels and The Pharcyde and sound tracking HBO television drama The Leftovers (a dystopian thriller about the sudden disappearance of 140 million people). But, take a listen to their brooding epic-hearted pop, like soaring electronic US single ‘Revolution Indifference’ and all these things start to make sense.
The full-length album A Lesson Unlearnt brims with big beats and bold melodies, carried by reflections, observations and a longing to connect in a seemingly disconnected world. The revelations are wrought in intricate melodies and weaved together by chief lyricist/producer and front-man Pete Lawrie-Winfield – a former film-student hailing from Cardiff – who’s clever way-with-words and understanding of musical space created their impressive debut.
A Lesson Unlearnt was written and recorded in Wales, the U.K, New York City and Los Angeles, and features a cohesive array of R’n’B influenced tracks such as the lead single “Revolution Indifference” featuring long time collaborators Run The Jewels, as well as the infectious modern-day-bluesy number “A Taste Of Silver” (featured on HBO’s hit series The Others). Other tracks, such as the moody “Orca,” “Spark,” “Persia,” and “Goldfish” are compelling lyrically and production-wise, destined for repeat play and enjoyment, all sitting quite comfortably between some of the better known fan favorites such as “Romeo,” “Perspective” and “Pressure.”
Over the last 6 months well as working on their own upcoming album, UTRB have caused frenzy amongst the blogosphere with their remixes or “reimaginations” of The Weeknd’s ‘Wicked Games,’ Sam Smith’s ‘Nirvana,’ Lorde’s ‘Royals,’ Phantogram’s ‘Fall in Love,’ London Grammar’s ‘Sights’ and a feature on EL-P and Killer Mike’s new album ‘Run The Jewels.’
Fresh from their Coachella debut in late April 2015, UTRB’s epic ‘apocalyptic’ pop is making big waves.
