We Were Promised Jetpacks

Half bracing post-punk and half tuneful indie pop, Glasgow's We Were Promised Jetpacks feature vocalist/guitarist Adam Thompson, guitarist Michael Palmer, bassist Sean Smith, and drummer Darren Lackie. The group formed while the four were still attending an Edinburgh high school, where they won a battle of the bands contest with their very first gig. After graduation, We Were Promised Jetpacks relocated to Glasgow, and their sound matured as well, moving from simple song structures and clean guitars to a more ambitious, anthemic approach. They were also inspired by fellow Glaswegians the Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit, and these influences could be heard on the three-song demo the band recorded, which received airplay on BBC, XFM, and Q Radio in the U.K., and KEXP in the States. In 2008, We Were Promised Jetpacks toured as Frightened Rabbit's opening act; that year, they were signed by Fat Cat Records (also home to both Frightened Rabbit and the Twilight Sad). In 2009, We Were Promised Jetpacks released two singles, Quiet Little Voices and Roll Up Your Sleeves, before their full-length These Four Walls arrived that summer. They followed up the next year with the EP The Last Place You'll Look, which featured some unreleased tracks and more orchestral rearrangements of some of the songs from their previous album. In 2011, the band returned with another full-length effort, the more driving In the Pit of the Stomach. While they toured in support of the album, they recorded E Rey: Live in Philadelphia, a live album named after the band's tour manager that was released in early 2014. During that time they also recorded their third album, Unravelling, with producer Paul Savage, which arrived in October 2014. Shortly before the album's release, We Were Promised Jetpacks added multi-instrumentalist Stuart McGachan as the band's fifth member. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

I can't get this song out of my head. Something about singing quiet little voices to yourself will make people look at you like your crazy.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you have started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

Wow. So this is what you get when you take indie and make it have sex with punk, it creates this dazzling little band right here.

Cool sounding band! My first exposure to their music was on Pandora on a Telekinesis channel.

@neil false, Band of Horses might want to see what these guys are doing and start copying them.
Report as inappropriate
Music's OK but each track sounds the same & they sound the same as every other band. Sounds like they are trying to copy Band of Horses.

I applaud the name choice, as it would be amazing to hear an emcee scream that phrase into the microphone as your band runs onstage...

It's Thunder and Lightning is such an amazing song, and the band is really good.
