The first time we heard of Dutch artist Pip Blom was way back in 2016 with the release of her tune 'Hours'. Back then, the project solely consisted of Pip but has now become a fully fledged band. Their debut album,Boat (out May 31st on Heavenly Recordings/PIAS), is a long time coming, but trust us when we say that Pip and her band have been anything but lazy. Along with making this album, they’ve played a nonstop onslaught of live shows all over Europe (and the UK) - also making their first-ever trip to the states for SXSW. We sent Ken Grand-Pierre to catch up with the band, shortly after their SX trip, to find out what went into the making of their album, Boat.
