Based out of Amsterdam, rising indie rocker Pip Blom has a big year ahead of her. After signing on with Heavenly Recordings (The King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Mark Lanegan), the 22-year-old is prepping to release her full-length debut, Boat, this summer. Blom, who’s opened for the likes of Garbage and The Breeders, is also set to support that LP with her first-ever US show at South By Southwest in March.
Boat, which officially arrives May 31st, was recorded at Big Jelly Studios in Margate, UK by Dave McCracken, who’s worked on releases from Depeche Mode and Florence and the Machine. The effort’s 10 tracks were then mixed by Dillip Harris in — of all places — a shipping container that sits along the banks of the Thames in East London.
Blom and her band are offering an early teaser of the new album via “Daddy Issues”, a lead single whose bouncy, upbeat tone is often sliced by keen, perfectly timed guitars. Take a listen below.
