Video of the Moment #2771: Until the Ribbon Breaks

Paul Laurie-Winfield, the Welsh driving force behind Until the Ribbon Breaks, has had a few rough years. The Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist admitted publicly, through this Tumblr post at the end of September of last year, that he has been struggling with a drink and substance abuse addiction and had been sober since the start of 2017. I interviewed him over drinks in 2015 in the little Cafe Saint-Ex on 14th Street, having no idea that the gin and tonic sat on the table between us was a vice. It makes me feel terrible. But it also drives home the point that anyone you meet in your daily life, it doesn’t matter how put together they look on the outside. That person could be struggling in secret. If you ever have the feeling that something is not right with one of your friends, please do me a favour. Support them. Ask them if they want to talk. If they don’t want to talk, don’t leave them. Don’t judge. We must be each other’s advocates. As the saying goes, “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.”

Laurie-Winfield and drummer Elliot Wall will be releasing their second album next month. Ahead of that, they’ve released a series of tasters, but I’ve been told the title track is the last one to tide us over until the self-titled album is released on the 23rd of February. The promo video is described in the press release as “sublimely choreographed”, and who I am to argue with such beauty? Check out ‘One Match’ the song and his accompanying video below. Having caught the ears of one Taylor Swift last year already, the sky’s the limit for the new Until the Ribbon Breaks album. Check out more on Lawrie-Winfield and co. through here.
