Amsterdam’s Pip Blom have announced the release of their sophomore album, Welcome Break. Self-produced and recorded at Ramsgate’s Big Jelly Studios, the record is the follow up to the bands much-loved debut, Boat.
The announcement arrives with an official visual for their latest single, Keep it Together, directed Danny and Isabelle Griffioen. Speaking of the visual, frontwoman Pip shares: "As Keep it Together comes out in spring, we really wanted to make something that fits with the vibe of the song." Griffioen adds, "With Ruben van Weelden giggling behind the camera about people not being able to follow and Ilse Kind creating a badass 80s set, the video ended up summery, uplifting and fun!"
Welcome Break is set to arrive as 'the self-assured older sibling' of their debut record, using the record as a vehicle to take the lead and use their voice and platform to address issues that resonate worldwide. The title takes its inspiration from the ubiquitous serviced dotted along Britain’s motorways, with the album built upon effortless song-writing and feel-good-melodies. “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...” adds Pip.
Welcome Break is out October 8. Watch the visual for Keep it Together below.
