Garden Stage, Friday 2024
25-year-old Amsterdam-based Pip Blom started writing, recording and releasing her own indie-pop tunes with a twist in 2016. Early songs quickly amassed thousands and thousands of plays – prompting Pip to recruit a band and start playing them live. In stepped brother Tender Blom on backing vocals and guitar, Darek Mercks on bass and Gini Cameron on drums, with Pip herself fronting on guitar on vocals. Since, the band have played hundreds of gigs, rising from small pubs to the European festival circuit with for example performances at Glastonbury and Lolapalooza.
Blom’s buoyant indie-rock proves hard to resist
