Amsterdam’s Pip Blom announce their stunning second album, ‘Welcome Break’, released on Heavenly Recordings. The album follows their much-loved debut, ‘Boat’, which was released in 2019.
‘Welcome Break’ was self-produced, mixed by Caesar Edmunds (PJ Harvey, St Vincent, Queens of the Stone Age) and recorded at Ramsgate’s Big Jelly Studios.
Following an extensive touring schedule, which saw the Dutch four-piece roam over field, oceans and Glastonbury’s John Peel stage following the release of ‘Boat’, Pip Blom immediately began to gather all her soakedup inspirations taken from the road, cosy down in a room of her parents’ house (which she shares with her brother and fellow bandmate Tender Blom) and over three months wrote twenty songs - sixteen of which were to become demos for the band to structure and flesh out, once in the studio together.
The result, ‘Welcome Break’ (and yes, the title is inspired by the ubiquitous serviced dotted along Britain’s motorways) resonates with about as much decisive allure as their previous album ‘Boat’ but this time with a bit more contemporary chaos to boot.
