With their highly-anticipated new album landing later this year, Pip Blom have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Kiss Me By Candlelight' sees them team up with Willem Smit of Personal Trainer for the release, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Is This Love?' ft. Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos in previewing their new LP 'Bobbie', which is out on the 20th October via Heavenly Recordings.
Speaking about the new offering, Pip said, "Long before Willem (from Personal Trainer) and I started seeing each other we had written a song together. We were 16 and barely knew one another. It was uncomfortable and we were both really shy. but I've always really really liked the track. Over the years we've been writing stuff on and off. It wasn't always easy cause both have very different ways of working and aren't really used to writing with someone else, but we've managed to write some of my favorite songs together. It's funny how there are always parts in the tracks that we've made together that are written for the other person. Melodies, sounds or rhythms, you know what the other person likes, and want them to like what you write. So when Dave asked me if I'd ever thought about writing a track with Willem I didn't have to think long. "Kiss Me By the Candlelight" was a song we had written not that long ago. It was a perfect fit for the album. It's danceable, a bit quirky, and a perfect blend of the two of us."
