This week’s Artist of The Week is Welsh band Cut Ribbons.
Their track ‘We want to watch something we loved burn’ was selected by BBC Radio 1’s Alice Levine for our ‘Best of Richer Unsigned’ vinyl release celebrating Record Store Day.
‘We want to watch something we loved burn’ features strong vocal melodies over a guitar riff-filled track bursting with energy. There is nice interplay between the two vocalists whose lines weave in and out of each other throughout the song. Huge gated reverb drums add to a very 80s sound, complete with a lead synth hook that churns away, leaving you humming it long after the track has finished! If you like The 1975, Prince and perhaps even early Ra Ra Riot this might be right up your street. Take a listen:
