Pip Blom is a lofi-indie creator from the Netherlands.
With music appearing fairly frequently, sometimes acoustic, other times plugged-in, I am glad to fill the void in the appearance of Pip Blom on the site with the latest track – I Think I’m In Love.
There is a quirky individualism to the output by which the audience can’t help but become transfixed as the singular vocal style captures the essence of the various songs, be they of forlorn moment, or as in this track, a nervous anticipatory optimism, whilst guitar bends strings to the point of testing tensile strength in a resultingly introverted two and almost five twelfths minutes composition the listener merely wishes lasted longer.
Word arrives of a new LP in the wings and from the forthcoming album – Everything – contains the familiarity of the fresh-faced US influenced indie sound which drew my attention to The 101’s back in 2014.
The dark-synth creator Jean Koning from the Netherlands will be releasing the LP From The Hermit’s Bedroom in March 2017.
On the 19th of January – Truly Love The Hunt – taken from the album will be released as a stand alone single.
Jean delivers music of dark context and outlook, with morose vocal encased in oppressive electronica folding a melancholic embrace around the listener.
Truly Love The Hunt is a roughly three and a sixth minute track which, both,musically and vocally rumbles around the room in ever more obsessive loops as the tale unfolds of assault and social media bullying from the perspective of the perpetrator.
The dark-electronica duo Dooxs from The Netherlands release the EP Under My Tongue on the 24th.

The third of the four tracks – Wander (which was released as a stand alone single yesterday) is an ethereal grinding of brooding sound that has the feel of a fog shrouded decaying industrial complex with machinery laying in waste as rain drips, through the broken roofs, echoing around the spaces.
