Manchester based Blanketman have announced their debut EP ‘National Trust’ will be released on March 19th via [PIAS] Recordings. The EP has been produced by Luke Smith, whose previous credits include working with Foals and LIFE.

The latest single from the upcoming release is ‘Leave The South’, speaking about that songthe band said:

“The song harks back to five years ago when I was living in Reading while at uni. While not a bad place, I found my final year tough and was becoming disillusioned with what I was doing and where I was. I was in a rut mentally and my friends had stayed up north and I found myself feeling increasingly isolated and skint. I managed to convince myself that moving back up North would solve all my problems like it was some kind of utopia and started blaming where I was for said problems. I laugh at that now and that’s what the song is about. Although the water really does taste better up North…”
