Three people stand in front of a vibrant yellow shutter surrounded by a royal blue backdrop.

After establishing themselves through years of gruelling touring and two critically-acclaimed albums, Dutch singer-songwriter Pip Blom embraces starting from scratch with her new album, ‘Bobbie’ – a delightful left turn into thumping, carefree synth pop.

While admitting to the cliché of a guitar-orientated band “grabbing the synths” for album three, this new direction had a real and genuine draw for Blom. On her previous albums, songs were written on the guitar, hoping that the studio process would then allow her to live out her pop dreams through final flourishes added during the recording process.

“We were always then running out of time,” she remembers, “and they ended up as just guitar-y albums.” For ‘Bobbie’, work with synthesisers and computers began from the very beginning, and she recruited producer Dave McCracken in a co-writer role to make sure the vision was fully realised.
