Pip Blom - Boat

Record of the Week is the scintillating debut LP - Boat - from Pip Blom. We had them celebrate this glimmering pop beauty with us last weekend at Sea Change (thats them below, photographed backstage by our Aubrey Simpson).

Can't rate it highly enough, moments of sunshine and melancholy all with such an addictive jangle. Excellent and joyous.

"The Dutch quartet undercut their perky, grunge-lite melodies with just the right amount of pop-fuzz aggression." - Pitchfork

"It’s becoming a cliché to fantasise over guitar bands and fall into the illusion that what they are doing is somewhat extraordinary and ‘out of the box’. But, with Pip Blom, the illusion is totally believable" - The Line Of Best Fit
