Pip Blom - Paycheck
Pip Blom is a young indie rock band from Amsterdam that’s been making waves in England, a BBC radio darling touring with Franz Ferdinand and The Breeders. Pip Blom is both the name of the band and its leader, a dynamic 21-year-old singer-songwriter-guitarist.
Paycheck, the group’s new EP, is a roaring, attitude-laden offering that maintains their playfulness and knack for melody that’s earned comparisons to Blur and Courtney Barnett. In 2017, a series of hooky singles Pip uploaded to the internet hit over a million plays, bringing a sudden burst of overseas accolades.
The 4-track EP (Pussycat / Come Home / The Shed / Hours) is something of an older sibling to Pip’s previous 7”s, doubling up on the infectiousness of those early hits but with a bigger crunch. Festival appearances and energetic, gripping live shows around the UK and Europe have solidified the band as a rising star in a new generation of indie guitar bands.
The release is a coöperation of Nice Swan Records from London and El Diablo from New York (run by Guided By Voices / Yoko Ono manager). There are only 500 copies available so order now to receive it at the end of August.
