I'd like to believe that Until The Ribbon Breaks was the reason why NYC weather finally got the memo and chilled out. Either way I doubt that Sprout and I could have asked for a nicer evening, aside from maybe witnessing a drunk girl stumble to the green room the second the band finished, which just made us stressed out on behalf of the band. When last we met the band at Mercury Lounge back in June it was admittedly a little clear that they were still getting their footing performing live as a full band. This time around, however, the four-piece was more confident in their abilities and it reflected in their delivery.
I was admittedly disappointed that the room wasn't sold out but that had more to do with the priorities of my fellow NYers than anything the band had control over. That said, those who were in attendance were definite devotees of the group. It was a bold move for them to open with, "2025", an earlier track of theirs that didn't end up on their debut full-length, A Lesson Unlearnt, but fans didn't even flinch and were supportive from the first beat to singer Pete Lawrie-Winfield's final belt in their closing song, "Goldfish".
