About Until The Ribbon Breaks:
Having wrapped up three sell out North American tours supporting Lorde, Phantogram and Delorean UTRB, the three piece band fronted by Cardiff native, Pete Lawrie Winfield recall how as youngsters you would "give a girl or a friend a mixtape to let them know what music you loved. It didn't matter if one song was De La Soul and the next was R.E.M. It was about the feeling the entire collection conveyed.
Drawing both their approach and name from their art form, Until The Ribbon Breaks (UTRB) are a uniquely skilled, singing, songwriting, producing collective. Decidedly honest, their music embraces an old-school passion for intricate, clever writing and the slicing together of sounds, samples and lyrics; a skill demonstrated in debut track Pressure and the accompanied self-made video which they released on YouTube two years ago.
Mesmeric, dark apocalyptic pop, meets infectious Avant RnB in a way that is both haunting and beautiful in its raw confrontation of human emotion. We had the honour to have Pressure remixed by Sirens Of Lesbos with commission from the band.
About SIRENS OF LESBOS:

Lately, they have been hosting their Essays Series - various EPs tailored exclusively for the dancefloor - a musical kaleidoscope which reaches from afro-house to balearic disco.
