"Keep It Together" is the first taster of Welcome Break, and also marks the Amsterdam-based group's first outing of the year, following last year's deluxe edition of their debut LP Boat.

Pip Blom says of the new song, "A very important thing of all the tracks is the dynamic between Tender's and my vocals. I feel like we really compliment each other's tones. Maybe it’s because we’re siblings, but whatever it is, I love it. In the chorus of "Keep It Together" we sing two completely different bits, but it works really well. Tender did a lot of singing for this record, mainly for the choruses and bridges. I really like how with this bridge you’ve got this whole choir of the two of us singing in different keys. It gives it a very dreamy vibe that is nice after the powerful chorus."

The title of Pip Blom's second album Welcome Break was inspired by the British motorway service station of the same name, and is self-produced.

Welcome Break was recorded at Ramsgate’s Big Jelly Studios, and is mixed by Caesar Edmunds (PJ Harvey, St Vincent, Queens of the Stone Age).
