Until The Ribbon Breaks – A Taste Of Silver

UTRB

UK trio Until The Ribbon Breaks captured global attention earlier this year with the release of their debut album A Lesson Unlearnt, even supporting top acts like Lorde, Phantogram, and London Grammar on tour. According to a press release, the electronic outfit derives its name from “the days when gifting mixtapes was the definitive romantic gesture . . . That careful ritual of combing through your record collection, choosing a myriad of musical moods and memories for the recipient to imbibe and devour again and again, until the tape wore out – Until The Ribbon Breaks.”

That’s a motion we at CCP can get behind. Fronted by Pete Lawrie-Winfield and backed by James Gordon and Elliot Wall, the three-piece collective UTRB draw inspiration from both music and film. As a former film student, Winfield believes these two art forms are intertwined, which is a philosophy they actually incorporate into their creative process.

Sneaking in another round of remixes before the weekend comes to a close. No time to waste, so let’s get started with the new single from electronic producer Sam O’Neill, aka TCTS. Having released EP These Heights late last year, he’s keeping the momentum with the release of his new EP Games. The lead single, “You” is another masterful, mid-tempo house pop song with driving synths, penetrating piano and dysphoric vocals from UK singer Sam Sure. Stream below. Next is the celestial reimagination of Phantogram‘s “Fall In Love,” from UK producer Until The Ribbon Breaks. An already stellar single in itself, UTRB takes the song in another, more tranquil direction that pleases the ear all anew. And lastly, Bombay Bicycle Club‘s track “Home By Now” gets the remix treatment from Louis The Child, the Chicago duo that just want to make people happy with music. Mission accomplished with their ebullient, arpeggio-infused rendition of BBC. Listen below and pick up a FREE download over on Soundcloud.
