Amsterdam-based Pip Blom has announced details of her new single, ‘Babies Are a Lie’, the first song on a AA single to be released via Nice Swan Records digitally NOW and on vinyl on 16 th October.
Since first airing her angst-ridden brand of lo-fi indie last year, Pip Blom hasn’t been one to hang around. Four singles released in quick succession introduced her music to listeners far wider than her native Netherlands, with airplay across the likes of American radio station KCRW, BBC Radio One and 6 Music ensuring songs Pip had simply uploaded to the Internet hit hundreds of thousands of streams.
Are We There Yet? followed, a three-track EP showcasing the 21-year- old musician’s art for subtle, yet effortlessly catchy melodies. Self-recorded, each track across the release occupies a different headspace and is packed with rough-edged charm; whetting the appetite for what may lie in wait for Pip’s debut full-length.
New track ‘Babies Are A Lie’ is next in a growing catalogue of notable tracks – with warming guitars and string accompaniment throughout, centred on Pip’s undeniable gift for a standout chorus.
The band: Pip Blom (vocals, guitar), Tender Blom (backing vocals, guitar), Casper van der Lans (bass), Camiel Muiser (backing vocals, drums)
