Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Pip Blom.
“Time’s slipping away from me / I’m growing older than I wanna be,” admits Pip Blom on her new track ‘Hours’. At the tender age of 19, it’s perhaps a bit early for such crises, but when it throws up gems like ‘Hours’ it’s hard not to relish her age-based anxieties.
