As you know, our second album Welcome Break will be available via Heavenly Recordings from November 12 onwards! But the reviews are already coming in and they are good!

Raving reviews!
  • XS NOIZE (10/10): “Welcome Break is one of the best records of the year. Don’t sleep on it.”
  • MOJO (4/5): “Sheer charisma of bold clanging anthems / Blom’s buoyant indie-rock proves hard to resist”
  • UNCUT (8/10): “Dutch foursome perfect Britpop 2.0 / A deceptively simple collection of slightly melancholy bangers / Play loud, listen carefully”
  • VOLKSKRANT (4/5): “Welcome Break is in alle opzichten de gedroomde vervolgstap na Boat”
  • DIY (4/5): “They master a balance between growing up and maintaining innocent charm”
  • SPECTRAL NIGHTS: “Welcome Break takes you on one hell of a personal journey. Enjoy your stay.”
  • LINE OF BEST FIT: “An addictive listen / near-impossible to not want to return to Welcome Break again and again.”
  • LOUD AND QUIET: “Bulletproof melodies with a keen sense of loud-quiet dynamics.”
Pre-order Welcome Break
We’ve got really special versions of Welcome Break coming up in limited editions, so please pre-order to be sure of a copy!
But listen to Different Tune first!
Different Tune is one of the 11 tracks on Welcome Break. It’s out now and it’s our ballad ;-) Pip Says:
“Different Tune really is the sentimental track on the record. The verses are pretty empty, and mostly revolve around the singing. So when the chorus hits the impact is even more. The trombone that’s slightly out of key in the chorus really strikes a chord for me. The bridge feels a bit like there’s a break through happening. As if there’s finally some sun after weeks of dark and rainy weather :) I hope this song can turn into an anthem. One can dream …”
Different Tune
Or watch the session version
We’ve recorded 4 different sessions on 4 special locations to coincide with the release of Welcome Break. Expect them later! But here is an example of Different Tune in session!

Speak to you soon! Love,
The Pips!
