Pip Blom Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Pip Blom is both the name of this band and of its charismatic leader... er, Pip Blom. They've already toured the UK and elsewhere with bands such as Franz Ferdinand and the Breeders and their hooky brand of post grunge pop is starting to make waves on its own terms. Think a more melodious Courtney Barnett maybe. Gonna be big -- watch.
Garage tinged and DIY through and through, Pip Blom writes, records and produces these darkened indie-pop tunes with a discrete minimal backline to a great emotional that you could compare to The XX, with a snarled and gruffened Cardigans esque vocal, there a load of 90s angst in there as well. Considering she was 3 in 1999, that’s pretty good.
