Neu Pick: Pip Blom whiles away the ‘Hours’ on her new single

Scratchy, anxious new self-produced track is today’s Neu Pick.

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.

July 1st will see ‘Hours’ get a 7” release via Norwich-based label Grunt Grunt A Go Go - ‘til then, dive into our first play of the ace new single below.
