Blanketman – National Trust EP

An introduction to a band of doubtless potential.

Label: [PIAS]
Released: 19th March 2021

There’s little better than a bit of good ol’ fashioned indie jangle.

Not that there’s anything stuffy or backward about Blanketman. Though their musical stylings may come from a deep, rich heritage of brilliant bands, it’s also one drenched in the exuberance of youth.

Their debut EP manages to take topics both serious and weighty (national identity on ‘Beach Body’, the increasing north/south divide on ‘Leave The South’) and flippantly fun (the escapism of ‘National Trust’).

Never lacking in spark or immediacy, it’s an introduction to a band of doubtless potential.
