5th June | Louisiana
After building up a buzz over the past year, Pip Blom will tour her debut album across the UK this summer. Amsterdam-born and based, Pip Blom is one of the latest young talents of the Heavenly roster. Growing up in a family of music journalists, Pip had her music epiphany when first seeing Parquet Courts live with her mum.
Since this pivotal event, Pip started composing and self-teaching guitar on a three-stringed kids’ instrument. It didn’t take long before Pip started crafting adrenaline-injected indie-pop bangers that have now found their place on the album, Boat. After starting as a DIY, bedroom solo project, due to the difficulty of recruiting band members, Pip dragged in friends and even her brother. The four-piece live line-up is now solid and explosive on stage, as a result of extensively touring across the UK, Europe and the US.
Expect wild live shows, with Strokes- and Parquet Courts-like infectious melodies blending with Pip’s distinctive voice, making the 22-year-old Dutch artist one of the most interesting indie acts to watch in 2019. Pip Blom plays The Louisiana on 5th June, with support from witty, post-punky indie revelations, Hotel Lux.
