Pip Blom have shared new song Freckles with plans afoot to release a deluxe version of their debut album Boat.
This new, limited edition version of Boat will carry an alternate cover and two 7” singles including the new song Freckles, set for release on Heavenly Recordings on November 8th. “There is real craft and attention to detail here,” Live4ever said of Boat.
“Every song has a well thought through arrangement and structure but, inevitably down to their circumstances, they are slightly held back by the limited instrumental options available, though exposure after a few listens reveals that the melody is key.”
“Not that there is anything wrong with the instrumentation; wonderful things can and often are achieved on guitar, bass and drums, and the range of options are on display here; the stinging guitar on Daddy Issues complement the naggingly infectious chorus, which like much of the album manages to retain the rawness of Pip Blom’s early demos. Elsewhere, the throbbing bass on Aha nearly blows out the earphones, and clattering cymbals are expertly deployed on several occasions to herald another splendid chorus.”
