It may only be April, but I’m going to go ahead and call Cardiff-based trio Until The Ribbon Breaks (UTRB) my favorite new discovery of the year. With a style that can be best described as an amalgam of downtempo electronica and R&B, UTRB continues to impress me with every new track I hear from them.  

“Spark” comes off of the group’s newest EP released just last month, The Other Ones, and holds a special place in my heart for being the song that introduced me to UTRB. Their single, “Pressure,” off the group’s first EP, A Taste of Silver, is one of the most assured debuts I’ve witnessed in recent memory. Then there’s the rework of Phantogram’s “Fall In Love,” which is something else altogether.

If you haven’t had a chance to immerse yourself in UTRB’s moody tunes and poignant lyrics, what are you waiting for?
