Until the Ribbon Breaks is a British band consisting of the frontman Pete Lawrie-Winfield (lead vox, keys, programming, percussion, brass and guitar), James Gordon (keys, percussion, programming, backing vocals, bass) and Elliot Wall (drums, programming, backing vocals). Sometimes referred to as UTRB, the band was founded in Cardiff, Britain in 2012 initially as Winfield's solo project and "blends genres like electronic, pop, rock, and hip-hop, but it’s all done with a sharp alternative edge."
The group began as the solo project of Pete Lawrie Winfield, from Cardiff, Britain. Both his parents were musicians, and Winfield grew up to listening to artists such as Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Elton John. Winfield went to school to study film, but found he preferred music after he started making soundtracks for his own movies. He has stated, "Until The Ribbon Breaks started as a concept I had for one record. Ribbon being film or a cassette tape as the whole thing was based around this idea of the combination of music and film. At the time I made it I didn't know how far I was going to go with it."
2013: Early releases
Stated Pitchfork Media on June 20, 2013, Until the Ribbon Breaks' early single "Pressure" "was written during a period when Winfield was sleeping on the floor of his studio with no concrete plan for his career." For the music video Winfield combined scenes from David Lynch's 1997 thriller Lost Highway, stating, "Lost Highway seemed like the perfect match visually for the mood I was trying to convey...The film feels willfully claustrophobic and always on the verge of losing any sense of continuity."
With the track "2025," released in June 2013, Pitchfork writes that Winfield "manages to paint a starkly provocative picture of emotional decay, exhaling his vocals with a painfully resigned rasp circled by lurching drum machines, deflating synths, and industrial clanging. '2025' is a beautiful dirge, a bleak track kept barely afloat by an aching, human sadness."
Winfield soon recruited James Gordon and Elliot Wall to join the band. To create their debut album, the band "buried themselves in a hidden studio space armed with just a film projector, a microphone, a drum machine, and a piano." The band would project films without sound on the studio walls while working, with Winfield stating "I’d shut the sound off, watch the movies, and make music to them. It was everything from David Lynch to Terrence Malick.”
The band finished their first tour of North America in 2013 in support of Lorde, and also finished a five-date tour across the United States with Phantogram that year. Spin named the Until The Ribbon Breaks one of the Best 5 Artist of the Month for June 2013. As of 2013 they have released remixes of The Weeknd's "Wicked Games," Sam Smith's "Nirvana," and Lorde's "Royals." UTRB was featured on Run the Jewels' "Job Well Done" in 2013
2014: Recent projects
In 2014 the band also released a remix of "Sights" by London Grammar, also releasing a music video for the remix composed of cut up clips from films that inspired the re-imagination. Vogue called the remix "a starker, slimmer version of the original that transforms the spirit of it into something slightly more eerie." In June 2014 the band performed at Electric Forest Festival in Michigan. The band will open for London Grammar throughout January 2015, after releasing their debut full-length album in January 2015.
