U.V – Ribbons

U.V are an exciting new electronic duo based in Manchester comprising of Zandra Klievens (formerly vocalist with NME starlets The ABC Club) and Jonjo Feather (having previously released music under his own name). It feels like this collaboration is a discovery for both, far removed from their work without each other, it’s beautiful to see how finding a little freedom and the right person to create with can pay dividends artistically.

Ribbons is a track of exceptional songcraft, combining the fuzzy romanticism of My Bloody Valentine with the pop sensuality of Goldfrapp. An eerie magic is on display here, synth sounds colliding with each other and falling dreamily down.
