Synth-pop outfit Until The Ribbon Breaks (lead by Pete Lawrie Winfield) out of Cardiff, UK and they truly harken back to the roots of their UK electro forefathers while seamlessly integrating an Indian influence. The blending of dub with sitar actually gives me chills. It’s super refreshing to hear radio-ready music that combines so many different influences (especially the hip-hop “WHOO-WHOO’s”). Winfield’s rough falsetto complements the raucous background so well. I feel a little guilty because I have slept on this band for about a year now as I joined their mailing list a while ago and haven’t really given them a good listen. Don’t make the same mistake I did! Listen now and get swept up! Also, if you are in LA, they have a Monday residency going on for the rest of the month at Bootleg, so hit them up!
