Blanketman "Leave The South"

UK band, Blanketman have shared new track “Leave The South.” the track is lifted from their forthcoming debut EP, National Trust. The album, which was produced by Luke Smith (Foals, LIFE), is due for release on March 19th, 2021 via [PIAS] Recordings.

In a 12 months that has seen much made about the divide between the north and south of England, “Leave The South” seeks not to pit the regions against one another, but instead offers a far more nuanced look at the way the grass can always appear greener on the other side. It also acts as something of a love-letter of absent friends and an admission that nothing is perfect. Lead vocalist and guitarist Adam Hopper elaborates: “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…”
