With The Road to Glastonbury in the rear-view mirror, the Pip Blom freight train rides on full-throttle. Who doesn’t fall head over heels for those whip-smart songs, kinetic shows, sheer joyousness and nonchalance? The group’s excellent first album Boat floats exuberantly between blistering indie rock and catchy alternative pop, as Pip expresses everyday observations with a sly disposition. The spry quartet has already shared stages with like-minded indie heavyweights The Breeders, Franz Ferdinand and Garbage. In the meantime, the band remain an essential cog within the flourishing Amsterdam indie rock scene. Best Kept Secret welcomes Pip back with a larger, more ambitious show.
