blanket, as the name suggests, envelop the listener in a comforting quilt of sound, transporting them to dreamy landscapes of sweeping, celestial beauty with a kaleidoscopic symphony of soaring guitars, tinkling piano, warm bass and propulsive drums. In essence, it’s ambient music on a cinematic scale.
Initial ideas and early demos came together at the beginning of 2016, as guitarists Bobby Pook and Simon Morgan would routinely retire to the conservatory of their rented home in Blackpool to noodle on guitars, tinkle ivories and write intertwining melodies, all whilst gazing wistfully skywards at the stars above them. It was perhaps such a sublime view that infused the music they created within that glass retreat with such elegance, purity and grace.
