Blanketman are a new band who sweat and toil in a city called Manchester.
Over the last year or two, the band have been spearheading a burgeoning scene locally and have gigged extensively throughout the town performing their original brand of restless-legged post-punk, served with a sharper, more sardonic pop edge than many of their more po-faced peers.  So sharp in fact that Steve Hanley, of The Fall and Brix Smith & The Extricated, has felt the need to get up on stage with them to perform live on two occasions already. Having started to make waves nationally with a string of festival appearances and Radio 1 plays in 2019 and 2020, where Huw Stephens had them as a One To Watch at the start of this year, the band released their debut single Taking You With Me via PIAS on 31/03/2020.

The DIY aesthetics of the video sit side-by-side with the DIY ethics of a band whose most recent show, played a few days before the pandemic was announced, sold out weeks in advance and saw them perform in front of a sold-out home crowd in one of the last shows played in the city. A band with both style and substance in abundance, Blanketman aren’t willing to limit these songs to just the north-west anymore – they’re taking you with them.

Blanketman are:
Adam Hopper – lead vocals, guitar
Jeremy Torralvo Godoy – bass, backing vocals
Ellie-Rose Elliott – drums, backing vocals
Daniel Hand – lead guitar
Eden Hemphill – keys, guitar, violin, backing vocals
