LISTEN: Cut Ribbons - Bound In Love

*Originally published for The Line of Best Fit (29/10/13)

Cut Ribbons' lead single from their upcoming EP doesn’t mark a dramatic change in sound, nor does it need to. “Bound In Love” is a sprightly pop-rock nugget, even more assured than the Welsh troupe’s previous offerings.

Muted guitars worm their way around buoyant drums and charming harmonies, giving us a sweet sneak-peek into Bound In Love EP. There couldn’t be better vocal pairing between singers Aled Rees and Anna Griffiths, with Griffiths’ soprano dancing nicely atop Rees’ docile vocal.

Clean-cut hand snaps, lively rhythms and breezy guitar hooks scream of the 1975's creative, sugar-rush pop music. It’s catchy, fun and confident – surely ready to home itself on radio playlists.

Bound In Love EP drops 18 November on Kissability. The new single is out on 8 December.
