 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.
 “Fuzzed out DIY guitar pop that plays by its own rules” - Clash
 “National Trust provides a slightly askew view on modern Britain… Fans of Parquet Courts or Sports Team will certainly find something to enjoy here.” - DIY
 “Never lacking in spark or immediacy, it’s an introduction to a
band of doubtless potential.” - Dork
 “Upbeat and hook-heavy” - Gig Wise
 “Blossoming in amongst the modern and the classic.” - The Line of Best Fit
 “A great effort from a great band.” - Louder Than War
 “An engaging group refreshingly privy to a little self awareness, Blanketman shouldn’t be taken for granted.” - So Young
 Tourdates - August 3 The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham, 4 The Hope & Ruin Brighton, 5 The Windmill London, 11 Future Yard Birkenhead, 12 Trades Club Hebden Bridge, 13 Yes (Pink Room) Manchester.
