Blanket Share Video For Their Cover Of Deftones’ “Knife Prty”


UK cinematic rock outfit Blanket have shared the below video for their cover of Deftones‘s “Knife Prty“. Blanket guitarist Simon Morgan had the following to say of their take on the track:

“‘White Pony‘ by Deftones is a seminal album and was released at a time where there was a sea of ‘Nu Metal’ bands cluttering the airways. This band always stood out away from that crowd, taking in influences from shoegaze, experimental and dream pop, amongst others. I love that idea of the synthesis of different styles to come up with something wholly new, which is something we strive to achieve ourselves.

We listened to this album to death for a whole year when it was released. Deftones are a band that have always put out fresh and innovative music and have kept doing so even through tragedy. As a nod of appreciation for their awesome output we decided to record a cover of ‘Knife Prty‘ from that album. Our version was tracked in one day with the marvellous Sam Bloor at Lower Lane Studios in Stoke, with additional production and electronic elements put together by us prior to this.

It was quite a tight time-frame but we managed to experiment somewhat in the middle section. We didn’t want to set out to do a straight up cover of this song and hope people dig our version.”

The aforementioned cover can be found on Blanket‘s newly released EP, “Transfixion“, which was released this past Friday, November 23rd.
