NEWS: Pip Blom share new video and announce UK tour dates

Amsterdam-based, indie rock band, Pip Blom has shared a new video for ‘You Don’t Want This, the latest track from their forthcoming second album, Welcome Break, out on Heavenly Recordings on the 8th of October.

Speaking about the video director Sara Elzinga said:

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.

The new album was self-produced and mixed by Caesar Edmunds (PJ Harvey, St Vincent, Queens of the Stone Age). You can pre-order it on the Heavenly Records website.

The band has also recently announced a UK headline tour in February 2022 and are confirmed as part of the National Lottery’s Revive Live Tour which is taking place in September 2021.
