Until The Ribbon Breaks: TAS In Session

There's a dystopian undertow to Until The Ribbon Breaks' first album, A Lesson Unlearnt, but the trio's genre-blurring debut is far from dour or dire. Cardiff-born, Los Angeles-based Pete Lawrie-Winfield and bandmates Elliot Wall and James Gordon have deftly mixed hues of soulful R&B, pop, muscular hip-hop, atmospheric electronica and dance rock into a heady brew.  The trio recently visited WFUV and The Alternate Side's Studio A for a session, to discuss the cinematic scope of the album and working with Run The Jewels and Homeboy Sandman. Watch videos of Until The Ribbon Breaks in Studio A, listen to the session any time in the FUV Vault or via TAS on 91.5 WNYE today, January 23, at 11 a.m. EST, also streaming online.
