Dutch band Pip Blom have dropped “You Don’t Want This,” the track is off their forthcoming release Welcome Break, available via Heavenly Recordings on October 8th, 2021. Self-produced, mixed by Caesar Edmunds (PJ Harvey, St Vincent, Queens of the Stone Age) and recorded at Ramsgate’s Big Jelly Studios Welcome Break follows their much-loved debut, Boat, which was released in 2019. Additionally, the band recently announced a UK headline tour in February 2022 and were confirmed as part of the National Lottery’s Revive Live Tour which is taking place in September 2021. Full list of tour dates are listed below.

Pip Blom immediately began to gather all her soaked-up inspirations taken from the road, cozy 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. With plans slightly complicated by the Covid-19 crisis, the band decamped to their favorite Big Jelly Studios in Ramsgate and after 14-days of quarantine set to work recording their second album over three weeks with engineer Al Harle.

Yet another master-class in effortless song-writing and feel-good-chorus’, as Pip explains, the secret behind the continuing run of form on Welcome Break is fairly simple: “I just really like catchy songs and I feel like that’s something we do well. It’s not sugar-coated-happy Pop…they’re more like ‘Titanic’ pop songs…”
