TRAVEL INSIDER Until the Ribbon Break’s black book.
On the road with the next It Brit band.
It’s like a rickety, fairly chaotic train that somehow arrives on time,” says Pete Lawrie-Winfield (before leaping out of his seat in a Toronto dressing room to frantically knock on wood). Lawrie-Winfield is talking about life on the road with Until the Ribbon Breaks, the self-described “genre: indefinable” band he fronts, alongside Elliot Wall on drums and James Gordon on synth. The U.K. natives just made the move to Los Angeles, although they’re currently criss-crossing the globe—Berlin! Portland! Coachella!—promoting their new album, A Lesson Unlearnt. “If you added together all the miles we’ve travelled and directed them toward space,” says Lawrie-Winfield, “we’d currently be circumnavigating Jupiter.”
