EP Review: Cut Ribbons – ‘SAIL’


You’d be hard pressed to find a more uplifting listening experience than the latest offering from Cut Ribbons. Their newly released ‘SAIL’ EP sees the welch-quintet confirm themselves as an emerging force on the indie-scene as we push towards 2015.

From its opening number ‘Walking on Wires’, the four-track EP beams with delightful mind-consuming melodies and as a sound that is diverse, ranging from thrashing guitar licks to moments of synth heavy blissful-ness.

If ‘SAIL’ is just a taster of what to expect from their debut album when it drops next year, it’s sure to turn a few heads and win a few hearts on the way.
