22-year-old Amsterdam-based Pip Blom started writing, recording and releasing her own indie-pop tunes with a twist in 2016. Early songs, which were simply uploaded to the internet, quickly amassed thousands and thousands of plays - prompting Pip to recruit a band and start playing them live. In stepped brother Tender Blom on backing vocals and guitar, Darek Mercks on bass and Gini Cameron on drums, with Pip herself fronting on guitar on vocals. Since, the band have played hundreds of gigs, rising from small pubs to the European festival circuit with performances at Eurosonic Noorderslag and The Great Escape - as well as being asked by the likes of Surfer Blood, Franz Ferdinand and The Breeders to join them on their various European tours.
The band’s energetic live show quickly pricked the ears of international press and radio: BBC Radio 1, NME, DIY, Dork, Brooklyn Vegan, Double J, Rolling Stone: ('a Cobain-ish gift for saying a lot with a little’) and NPR ('a burst of frenetic joy to lift you up'). BBC 6 Music even A-listed 5 (!) of Pip's singles in a row.
