Amsterdam’s Pip Blom are back with a brand new record, ‘Welcome Break’. The album follows their much loved debut ‘Boat’.
Due for release on October 8th, ‘Welcome Break’ is self-produced and engineered by Al Harle at Big Jelly Studios. The record has been mixed by Grammy award-winning engineer Caesar Edmunds.
✽ Keep It Together, the first single and feel good chorus from the album is out today! ✽
It is accompanied by a brilliantly entertaining video directed by Danny and Isabelle Griffioen. With the band suggesting the video use the daily simple work out shows for the elderly in the Netherlands as a reference, it sees them and their friends trying to keep up with the choreographers routines.
Pip say’s about the video:
“As Keep it Together comes out in spring, we really wanted to make something that fits with the vibe of the song.”

Talking about the track, Pip said:
“A very important thing of all the tracks is the dynamic between Tender’s and my vocals. I feel like we really compliment each other’s tones. Maybe it’s because we’re siblings, but whatever it is, I love it. In the chorus of Keep It Together we sing two completely different bits, but it works really well. Tender did a lot of singing for this record, mainly for the choruses and bridges. I really like how with this bridge you’ve got this whole choir of the two of us singing in different keys. It gives it a very dreamy vibe that is nice after the powerful chorus.”
Where Boat reckoned as a fresh-faced, yet gloriously fearless game- changer, Welcome Break is the self-assured older sibling who, with an additional year or two behind themselves, isn’t afraid to speak out, take lead, and instigate a liberated revolution-come-bliss-out.
Yet another master-class in effortless song-writing and feel-good-chorus’, as Pip explains, the secret behind the continuing run of form on Welcome Break is fairly simple – “I just really like catchy songs and I feel like that’s something we do well. It’s not sugar-coated-happy Pop…they’re more like ‘Titanic’ pop songs…”
