PIP BLOM – ” Keep It Together “

Posted: June 18, 2021 in MUSIC

“Keep It Together” is out now! Very happy to finally share the first track of our new album “Welcome Break” with you guys! We had so much fun recording this video.

Amsterdam’s Pip Blom will return with their sophomore album Welcome Break, which will be released on October 8th via Heavenly Recordings.

The announcement comes paired with the release of the albums first single, the triumphant “Keep It Together.” It’s yet another perfect combination of their garage rock sound combined with an infectious catchy pair of hooks that are buried alongside the fuzz. The band have a knack for crafting songs that are way catchier than you notice the first time around, revealing themselves even more with every new listen.

Where Boat reckoned as a fresh-faced, yet gloriously fearless game- changer, Welcome Break is the self-assured older sibling who, with an additional year or two behind themselves, isn’t afraid to speak out, take lead, and instigate a liberated revolution-come-bliss-out.

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…”

The single comes with a music video that features the band and other dancers doing some 80s inspired dance choreography and workout rountines. It was directed by Danny and Isabelle Griffioen and can be found below, along with the album artwork and tracklist.

Talking about the track, Pip said:

“A very important thing of all the tracks is the dynamic between Tender’s and my vocals. I feel like we really compliment each other’s tones. Maybe it’s because we’re siblings, but whatever it is, I love it. In the chorus of Keep It Together we sing two completely different bits, but it works really well. Tender did a lot of singing for this record, mainly for the choruses and bridges. I really like how with this bridge you’ve got this whole choir of the two of us singing in different keys. It gives it a very dreamy vibe that is nice after the powerful chorus.”
