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.
“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.
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.
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.
