New Music of the Day – CLIII : Acacia – Blanket

25d844fd-2404-42ab-9ab5-0e7db1564719Post-rock quartet blanket are pleased to reveal another stunning video for album track ‘Acacia’ today alongside news of an EU tour in February 2017 hitting the UK, Germany, Belgium and Poland.

 

Where previous single ‘Starlight Filled Our Minds’ was a missive on never being held back and carving out your own future, ‘Acacia’ is a look at the things we cannot prevent, an ode to the passing of time and self-reflection.

 

“We all have relationships; some that are spiritual, some that we cannot prevent, some that we wish were longer, or shorter” explains drummer Steven Pellatt of the new track “The video is about the fragility of human relationships, fate and what we’re left with to look back on once we’ve lost something from our lives.”

 

A brand new four-piece originating in Blackpool, Lancashire, they specialise in sweeping, post-rock-influenced, ambient sounds inspired by the likes of Caspian, Sigur Ros, Circa Survive, This Will Destroy You, Nothing and Failure. Their whole aim is to create an audio-visual soundscape that will take both listeners and spectators on a journey of sensory discovery.

 

Comprised of four professional musicians with years of experience in the music industry, across their various projects the members of blanket have toured the world extensively alongside names as diverse as Youmeatsix, The Wonder Years, Skindred, Four Year Strong, Super Heaven, Every Time I Die and The Story So Far, had tracks featured on international television and the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game series, and received coverage from music publications worldwide.
