❃ PRAISE FOR ‘BOAT’ ❃
“A dead cert for the 6music tea-time kitchen disco, Dutch indie darling Blom hits all the alt- rock pleasure centres: jangly, whistle-able songs with sultry VU vocals. Tight-wound Buzzcocks riffs and Sleater-Kinney choruses.”
– ★★★★ – MOJO Magazine –
“Singer Pip Blom’s broad-brush clank exploded onto Spotify playlists in 2016, compelling her to find a band to fit her vision. ‘Boat’ shows it in full effect: robust, sparkly and with ocean- going choruses on the clockwork Blondie of ‘Don’t Make It Difficult,’ ‘Ruby’ and the rolly-eyed ‘Daddy Issues.”
– 8/10 – Uncut Magazine
“Uplifting, powerful and sincere, Pip Blom deliver a rich, ocean-inspired debut that is instantly captivating. This is the opening chapter to something very exciting.”
9/10 – Line of Best Fit
“Boat is a triumphant debut album because it’s both familiar and authentic, and when you have a melodic impulse that shines as brightly as this, you can’t really go wrong.”
– ★★★★ – The Skinny
“The chemistry that drives them forward on stage fizzes through ‘Boat’ and is just as intoxicating. The back-and-forths. It all adds up to some fuzzy-pop goodness that’s a blast to listen to.”
