Debut Album We Want To Watch Something We Love Burn  Out 20th August Via Kissability.

Welsh alternative pop band Cut Ribbons have shared their cover of the Patti Smith classic ‘Because The Night’ to celebrate the release of their debut album We Want To Watch Something We Love Burn. The record is out today via Kissability. Listen to the track above.

Frontman Aled Rees elaborates on their decision to cover ‘Because The Night’: “We had just played the Jäger stage at Field Day and we were running to main stage to catch Patti Smith. Everyone was on such a high after the set and it was a real seminal moment for us. Patti Smith was amazing and when she played ‘Because the Night’ we were all just having the best time. That elation was the genesis of the cover. We recorded it in our studio and it was such a pleasure to record.”
