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-

po-faced peers. So sharp in fact that Steve Hanley, of The Fall and Brix Smith & 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

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

played in the city.

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
