Pip Blom streaming two great tracks off ‘Paycheck’ EP (listen)

Amsterdam indie rockers Pip Blom have been on the rise lately, with the upcoming release of their Paycheck EP, which they’re currently streaming two great songs from. Pip Blom is the name of the band and also the name of the singer, and she cites such ’90s indie influences as Blur, Pavement, and The Breeders, the latter of whom they toured with earlier this year. They also just wrapped up some dates with ’90s alt-rockers Garbage, and if you’re a fan of either of Pip Blom’s recent tourmates, there’s a good chance you’ll dig Pip Blom too. Mostly because of Pip’s singing style, they also tend to get hit with a lot of comparisons to (Breeders collaborator) Courtney Barnett, though Pip is tired of hearing it:

The thing is when we first started I really liked her music and then we got the comparison all the time and I’ve stopped listening to it because I think it’s so annoying. I think it’s lazy and it’s coming because we’re both female and we’ve got this lazy singing style. I like her, though, and I think she’s very cool.

The two songs streaming from Paycheck at the moment are “Come Home” and “Pussycat.” “Come Home” is powered by some off-kilter guitar leads and a minimal, shuffling rhythm, while “Pussycat” is a bit more of a rager, and on both songs, it’s Pip’s instantly likable voice that wins you over. Check them out below. Paycheck comes out October 5 via Persona Non Grata.

Pip Blom also have a UK/Ireland tour in November and all dates for that are listed below too.
