You should all be familiar with Cardiff producer Until the Ribbon Breaks by now, he’s been onto something special releasing his incredible single ‘Pressure’. His debut EP, A Taste of Silver is an insight into the future of R&B; to put it short, it’s breathtaking.
Opening with the scintillating synths of ‘2025’, the EP flows beautifully into the hip-hop influenced ‘Perspective’ featuring Homeboy Sandman. Although ‘Pressure’ remains the highlight, it’s track three ‘Romeo’ which really brings this set together. Swirling in mysterious instrumentation and whispery vocals, ‘Romeo’ maintains a certain intrigue with its storytelling “You see I would have killed Romeo/ And saved Juliet/ But I don’t write stories/ That time wont forget”. At the forefront of A Taste of Silver, UTRB brings together cleverly crafted instrumentation and crisp, vocals telling the story of a man finding love in the darkest of places.
