Now Watching: Pip Blom – 'Ruby'

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Amsterdam band Pip Blom have been prepping up for the release of their highly anticipated debut album Boat via Heavenly Recordings. Before we all get to enjoy what they dish out on May 31st, they unveiled their latest single ‘Ruby’ along with a brand new music video.

Listening to ‘Ruby’ feels like a dose of exhilaration rushing through your body — featuring a vibrant mix of indie rock and post-punk, ‘Ruby’ is an untamed and raw offering from the band.

The intriguing music clip was directed by Raymond van Mil and depicts scenes of the band in the seaside amidst eerie happenings. On the video, Raymond van Mil said, “We made a few jumps in our imagination, and we were explicitly not trying to explain or illustrate the lyrics. We started with flamingos. Apparently there are two distinct families standing some 20 meters apart on one exact place in Zeeland/the Netherlands. We went there and were in amazement, it looked so alien in the Dutch landscape. From there the UFO story unfolded and was fun.”

You can watch their fascinating new video for ‘Ruby’ below.
