Amsterdam’s Pip Blom has shared new single ‘Pussycat,’ the first track to be taken from her upcoming EP, Paycheck, released August 31st on El Diablo and Nice Swan Records. The 10″ vinyl can be pre-ordered through Midheaven in North America.
Pip Blom is a phenomenal 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 singles sold out quickly, and El Diablo (run by Guided By Voices / Yoko Ono manager) has pressed up just 500 copies of this 10″ vinyl. The EP 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.
