We send this letter to people we've had contact with or people we think are interested in us and our music. Updates about music, tours and media. If we're wrong, we're sorry, then don't hesitate and unsubscribe! All the best, Pip, Tender, Darek, Gini.

We’re so excited. There is a lot happening at the moment. It’s still difficult to believe because it’s only 14 months since we released our first song and it’s only 9 months since we played our first gig. And this is what’s been happening in the past two weeks alone!

A BBC 6Music session!
We’re so happy that we are doing a session for Marc Riley on BBC 6Music om april 11th! Marc’s been playing I Think I’m In Love (“A really really brilliant record”) already three times and made it his 6Music Recommends song. Because of that, this week the track will be played everyday on daytime 6Music as well. Great! 
Besides that Hew Stephens played I Think I’m In Love on BBC Radio 1 (it’s our third single he has played!) and 6Music added I Think I’m In Love to the 6Music Recommends playlist on Spotify.
Not bad at all! ;-) 
The reactions on I Think I'm In Love are great!
The reactions in general have been great on I Think I’m In Love. This week we are IndieDisc at IndieXL and Spotify Netherlands, 3VOOR12, Oor, Noisey, KinkFM and Pinguin Radio amongst others added I’m Think I’m In Love to their Spotify playlists. Besides that Chris Muckley has been playing the track on KCRW and Apple Music added the tune to the Breaking Alternative playlist. There have been other stations and sites supporting us too, sorry we can’t name them all. Thanks all for that! 
And here are some of the reviews …
Dork Magazine: "An addictively catchy lo-fi gem, with heaps of attitude."
Gigslutz: "A scuzzy indie-pop delight."
Fortitude Magazine: "Pip Blom is a One To Watch in 2017."
If It's Too Loud...: "This is about to become your next obsession."
The Revue: "Meet Dutch sensation Pip Blom"
What a tour we've had with Surfer Blood!
Yes, we’re back. And we’re tired. But it was great. We spend 17 days on tour with Surfer Blood and that was such great fun! We played in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium, England, Scotland and Wales. And we played everyday. Well, we had 1 day off ;-) 
We’ve had a great time with Surfer Blood (thanks so much all, we love you!) and it was good to make new friends in all those cities we visited. Here are a few of the reviews! 
Even The Stars: "A totally infectuous energy." (UK / English)
3voor12: "We're going to hear a lot from Pip Blom". (NL / Dutch)
Concert Monkey: "Pip Blom, a name to remember" (BE / French)
