19 yr old lo-fi rocker Pip Blom shares new single "Hours"

PIP BLOM SHARES HER NEW SINGLE "HOURS" 

SUPPORT FROM BBC RADIO 1 AND KCRW

UK 7" OUT NOW VIA GRUNT GRUNT A GO GO

"Only 19 years old and sounds like a stripped back Courtney Barnett..." - 
BBC Radio 1

"Scratchy and self-recorded, it's an insight into a psyche that's constantly searching for something more. Bound by her lo-fi restrictions, the Amsterdam native nevertheless manages to pluck slicker-than-your-average melodies out of her world of haze and fuzz, pitching them front and centre." - DIY Mag

"The notions of the ticking clock are translated to infectious chords & drum loops that make for hypnotic trip where everything you have thought about the mystery of minutes, seconds, and more is displayed in dadaist like audio that almost accidentally becomes one of the danciest singles you have heard all week." - Impose Magazine

19 year old Netherlands lo-fi rocker Pip Blom has released her new single "Hours" worldwide. The BBC Radio 1 approved track is a groovy, danceable slice of indie rock which brings to mind Courtney Barnett, Speedy Ortiz and even The Breeders

As catchy as the music is, what really stands out are the incredibly mature and introspective lyrics which perfectly encapsulate the fear of losing the ones we love to time. As Pip Blom explains to Impose Magazine, "'Hours' is not really about the fact that I'm getting older. That doesn't bother me yet, but it's more about how every hour I get older it means people I love get older too. My parents, but especially my grandparents. "Hours" is essentially a song about loss. When time ticks away people grow old. And you know the moment you will lose them comes closer. You can't do anything about it, but you know it will come."

The track is available now backed with her other single "Truth", which also has gotten some great support from KCRW, on an exclusive 7" in the UK via Grunt Grunt A Go Go.
