One year on from the release of Blanketman’s debut single, ‘Taking You With Me’, ‘National Trust’ – produced by Luke Smith (Foals, LIFE) – has gone on to spawn a string of much-loved singles, from the urgent ‘Beach Body’, through the wonky and wordy ‘Harold’, to their grass-is-always-greener banger ‘Leave The South’.

In their wake the band have picked up much support from Steve Lamacq and Marc Riley at 6Music, plus a plethora of frothing words from a shedload of press tastemakers including So Young, Line Of Best Fir, DIY and Louder Than War, among others.

Recent years have seen the band spearheading a burgeoning scene in Manchester as they gigged extensively throughout the city, performing their original brand of restless post-punk and cerebral indie-pop – all served with a sharper, more sardonic pop edge than many of their more po-faced peers. So sharp, in fact, that Steve Hanley (The Fall and Brix Smith and the Extricated) has performed live on stage with them a number of times already.
