After an impressive 2020, including the release of their impressive singles ‘Beach Body’ and ‘Harold’, UK band Blanketman are back at it again with new music, this time coming through another gem with ‘Leave The South’. The single will be appearing on their upcoming debut EP National Trust, due for release on March 19th via [PIAS] Recordings. 

Lead vocalist and guitarist Adam Hopper says on ‘Leave The South’, “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.”

Also adding, “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..."
