Amsterdam natives Pip Blom make their way to the Byrd for a Fall headline play!
Based in Amsterdam, 20 year old Pip Blom writes, records and releases her own indie-pop tunes with a twist. Although she only started releasing her raw guitar power with catchy melodies early 2016, she has already received acclaim from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq and massive support from American tastemaker radio station KCRW. Besides that Pip received raving reviews from media like DIY Magazine (“A gem”), The Line Of Best Fit (“A gigantic dollop of catchy pop pep”), Fingers On Blast (“An exceptionally talented lo fi rock monster”) and The Most Radicalist (“Hipnotically lo-fi and brilliantly simplistic”).
Looking at the stats, besides her own The Netherlands, America and England are important markets for Pip’s music with Amsterdam, London and Manhattan as
major cities. The songs have been featured in influential Spotify playlists as New Music Friday, Fresh Finds, Indie Songs For Slackers and Absolute
Alternative with almost 500.000 plays as a result! In 2016 Pip released the double A-side 7” release Truth / Hours on the Norwich based Grunt Grunt
A Go Go label, the 3 track EP Are We There Yet on Toaster Records and limited edition 7” Working On It on the Paradiso Vinyl Club, the talent label
of the prestigious Amsterdam club Paradiso. In februari 2017 Pip will release the single I Think I’m In Love, another catchy rocking tune, this time
produced by Raven Aartsen from Mozes And The First Born.
