Lorde – Until The Ribbon Breaks

Amidst a world of calculating contest winners, manufactured show ponies and cheap knock offs – Lorde is a true original.

She is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, born and raised on Auckland’s North Shore, and possessed of a singular ability to capture the majesty, and mundanity, of teenage life – in striking melodic snapshots that belie her age and experience.

Raised on a nutritious musical diet of Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, The Smiths and Nick Drake, alongside a smattering of soul food from the likes of Etta James and Otis Redding, Ella was definitely set off on strong melodic footing. Later she discovered artists like James Blake, Bon Iver, Burial, Animal Collective, SBTRKT and Drake – all of whom made an impact in their own, individual way. As vital and varied as those influences are, they don’t really begin to tell the full story of Lorde’s music, which melds concentrated, sharp-eyed lyrics and multi-layered vocals with crisp, 2013 beatscapes.

The decision to release her first EP, with plenty of mystery but no marketing or publicity, and just a simple, lifelike illustration, was Lorde’s, and it was a masterstroke. Even after 60,000 free downloads on SoundCloud, The Love Club EP still shot to #1 on the New Zealand Album Chart, with Royals simultaneously occupying the top spot in the singles chart – without so much as a video on YouTube. Before any of that success, she was already the focus of a hotly contested bidding war, rapidly being signed up for the UK, US and other major territories, simply on the strength of her music and blindingly obvious potential alone. Tweeted about by everyone from Grimes to Sky Ferreira to Doomtree, and picked up by Buzzfeed, Perez Hilton et al – these are the beginnings of an impending roar, about an artist who is quite simply, cut from a different cloth.

Pete Lawrie Winfield P.K.A Until The Ribbon Breaks is a British DJ, Producer, Singer, Songwriter and Visual Artist who’s music embraces an old school passion for clever writing and the slicing together of sounds, samples and lyrics.

Having first caught everyone’s attention earlier this year when he unleashed his self-made video for ‘Pressure’ on youtube. His powerful, dark, apocalyptic pop, tinged with infectious RnB style prompted critical acclaim from some of the biggest names in the music industry.

This year, as well as working on his own upcoming album and collaborative projects with EL –P, Burns and The Weeknd, a number of artists from ‘Of Monsters and Men,’ to ‘Tegan and Sara,’ and ‘Laura Mvula’ have called on Pete’s remixing talents to work together on new projects earning him acclaimed reviews in key online powerhouses such as, Jay Z’s ‘Life and Times,’ ‘Pitchfork’ and ‘This is Fake DIY’ but to name a few.

Recently signed to Universal Republic Records Pete’s unique talent to award his audience a unique sensory experience with production skills not unlike that of previous genre hopping masters; Beck, Prince, Primal Scream and Massive Attack has the platform it requires to make 2014 a very exciting year.

Until The Ribbon Breaks first EP is due for release in Sept 2013 followed by a debut album in early 2014.
