Amsterdam four-piece Pip Blom are releasing a new album, “Welcome Break”, on October 8 via Heavenly Recordings. On Tuesday they shared its third single, “You Don’t Want This” via an amusing and colourful video for the song.

Sara Elzinga directed the “You Don’t Want This” video and had this to say in a press release: “When I first heard ‘You Don’t Want This,’ I recognized the feeling of self-consciousness; knowing that people have a certain way of looking at you, that does not necessarily comply with the image you have of yourself. The concept of a Matryoshka doll then stuck in my head, having these multiple versions of yourself that are hidden at first. The set reminds us of a dollhouse, of someone who is so comfortable in their own scenery, they forget to look at the world outside of the room. Though rather than making a music video about anxiety, I wanted the video to be about self-acceptance. Smiling back at yourself, instead of constantly criticizing which is something people tend to do.”

Previously they shared Welcome Break’s first single “Keep It Together” via a video featuring the band in an aerobics class. Then they shared its second single, “It Should Have Been Fun”.

Get your ears and eyes on the brand new Pip Blom single and video, ‘You Don’t Want This’, the latest to be released from the forthcoming album, ‘Welcome Break.

Welcome Break” is the band’s second album, the follow-up to 2019’s “Boat” . Pip Blom are a band, but it’s also the name of the band’s frontwoman. The band also features her brother, Tender Blom. Pip wrote 20 songs in her bedroom in her parent’s house and 16 became demos. The album was recorded at Big Jelly Studios in Ramsgate, England over three weeks with engineer Al Harle.
