Music Video: Until the Ribbon Breaks - Romeo
After his 8-date tour with New Zealand female solo artist Lorde, UK producer/artist Until The Ribbon Breaks (Pete Lawrie Winfield) reveals his video-montage for his dream-like track 'Romeo' (which reminds us of Unbuttoned closely related concept). The visuals to the 1996 movie "Romeo + Juliet" seems to depict the lushful intimacy between the listener and the track.. When asked about the project UTRB responded with the following:
Every other song on the EP and also the forthcoming album had started with the drums.
Romeo started with the words.
Written at a time of massive upheaval, it is perhaps the most honest and personal track for me lyrically - and therefore, the most important.
At the time of writing it, I had put everything on the line to make the music that I wanted to make, the music that i had in my head.
Romeo just fell out of thick, heavy, confusing air. The music took a lot longer, but the words wrote themselves.
Later when I made the accompanying video and found out that Baz Lurhmann had not only seen, but liked what I done with his work, it was the icing on the cake - for a project that thad taken a lot out of me. It was cyclical and overwhelming.
From conception to the finished piece, I finally felt that I had said what I had needed to say, without compromise.
