Next month see’s the release of Pip Blom’s debut album, ‘Boat’ and today the quartet share the exuberant single ‘Ruby’ with a brand new video.
The single comes after the radio smash hit, ‘Daddy Issues’ which landed on the BBC 6 Music A-list earlier this year. ‘Ruby’ follows in a similar vain and stands up as another ear worm from the Amsterdam quartet. The video was shot on a 8mm format and premiered over at Paste Magazine.

Speaking on the video, director Raymond van Mil explains:
“We made a few jumps in our imagination, and we were explicitly not trying to explain or illustrate the lyrics. We started with flamingos. Apparently there are two distinct families standing some 20 meters apart on one exact place in Zeeland/the Netherlands. We went there and were in amazement, it looked so alien in the Dutch landscape. From there the ufo story unfolded and was fun. Was it a dream? A memory? A documentary? Only Pip knows. “
‘Boat’ is energetic in sound & as infectious as Pip’s previous singles. Recorded with Dave McCracken at Big Jelly studios in Margate with the album then mixed by Dillip Harris in a shipping container on the banks of the Thames in East London. Its result is ten songs that, alluding to the album’s title, ferry you through Pip’s headspace via expertly crafted songs gelled together through their unassuming depth. Released on Friday 31st May…
The band are set to tour the UK in May and June, and also play a number of festivals throughout summer, including Sea Change, Reading and Leeds, Field Day and Port Eliot. Plus, the band have recently announced their biggest London show to date, taking place at the Scala on October 16th.
