Amsterdam bases band Pip Blom have announced a headline show in The Academy 2, Dublin on 11th February 2022. Tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster.


Ahead of their highly anticipated Dublin show at The Academy 2 on 11th February, Amsterdam’s Pip Blom have today shared the fantastic new video for You Don’t Want This, the latest track from their forthcoming second album, Welcome Break, which is out on Heavenly Recordings on 8th October 2021.

You can watch the video HERE

Self-produced, mixed by Caesar Edmunds (PJ Harvey, St Vincent, Queens of the Stone Age) and recorded at Ramsgate’s Big Jelly Studios Welcome Break can be pre-ordered HERE and it follows their much-loved debut, Boat, which was released in 2019.  

Following an extensive touring schedule, which saw the Dutch 4-piece roam over field, oceans, and Glastonbury’s John Peel stage following the release of their debut record Boat, Pip Blom immediately began to gather all her soaked-up inspirations taken from the road, cosy down in a room of her parents’ house (which she shares with her brother and fellow bandmate Tender Blom) and over three months wrote twenty songs- sixteen of which were to become demos for the band to structure and flesh out, once in the studio together. 

With plans slightly complicated by the Covid-19 crisis, the band decamped to their favourite Big Jelly Studios in Ramsgate and after 14-days of quarantine set to work recording their second album over three weeks with engineer Al Harle.

The result, Welcome Break (and yes, the title is inspired by the ubiquitous serviced dotted along Britain’s motorways) resonates with about as much decisive allure as their previous album Boat, but this time with a bit more contemporary chaos to boot. 

Where Boat reckoned as a fresh-faced, yet gloriously fearless game- changer, Welcome Break is the self-assured older sibling who, with an additional year or two behind themselves, isn’t afraid to speak out, take lead, and instigate a liberated revolution-come-bliss-out. 

Yet another master-class in effortless song-writing and feel-good-chorus’, as Pip explains, the secret behind the continuing run of form on Welcome Break is fairly simple -  “I just really like catchy songs and I feel like that’s something we do well. It’s not sugar-coated-happy Pop...they’re more like ‘Titanic’ pop songs...”
