Biography

Following closely in the footsteps of The Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks are yet another hugely talented young Scottish band added to the FatCat roster. The 4-piece came to our attention when listening to some of the friends on the Frightened Rabbit Myspace page. Though recent months has seen the band tour the UK with their aforementioned friends, the four ... Read more in Amazon's We Were Promised Jetpacks Store

Until an in-form and much-missed Idlewild return Messiah-like to our lives then those with a penchant for shouty Scots rock will have to content themselves with releases such as this. Despite many a lazy comparison with Frightened Rabbit and Twilight Sad, all these boys really share with their compatriots is a thick tongue and a desire to impress. Jetpack's (it's easier) brand of indie-rock is expansive and comes served with a generous helping of pop appeal not at all evident however on throbbing and menacing opener `It's Thunder And It's Lightning'. Starting in the fabled lull of the storm, it then introduces Thor's own drums to an anthemic, if lyrically limited, rouser.

These boys do not sound contemporary yet sing of the modern Scotland portrayed in the ever-reliable Red Tops. This opener sings of someone `punching out my lights', `Ships With Holes Will Sink' about the inevitability of `stab wounds' and possibly about the attraction of adhesives, though this could be lost in translation. Sadly, the latter of these tracks does not capture the primal excitement of the opener, nor does `Roll Up Your Sleeves', but they both lollop along happily in safe, quiet-loud country. Later, `Short Bursts' returns to the ring fists balled for an oddly patriotic call-to-arms that will do more for Scottish solidarity than which ever sport they're losing at this weekend. All this and they have still the time to combust with the power of Explosions In The Sky at its crescendo, confirming the post-rock influences that were suggested on the bubbling interlude `A Half Built House'.

`Conductor' returns the listen to sky-cracking grandiosity, all Arcade Fire bluster fed on a diet of raw, Northerly winds and withdrawn promises of future technology.

This album has the ability to stir emotion. I find parts slightly saddening. I love their sound and style however I do find some songs can be slightly repetitive. Still, I think I'd struggle to get bored of the album. Have to love the Scottish twang as well!

In all, if you like Frightened Rabbit, you'll like these. Just about different enough to say they are not one and the same.

I got this album based on a lot of comparisons to Frightened Rabbit. As another reviewer pointed out, the accent is the only similarity. For anyone looking for a band like Frightened Rabbit, try Neutral Milk Hotel (though both are unique in their own way). I didn't think I'd listen to These Four Walls again after a few listens-songs very simplistic and lyrics repetitive-but that first song is a really catchy tune. Perhaps the rest of the album will grow on me.

This is the stuff that should be on the telly, radio, the stuff kids talk about at school etc. but it's relatively hidden away thanks to that soulless, shiny Cowell rubbish that swamps our lives. This is a wonderful record...proper music. Thank god (if there were one)for the many good Scots bands at present like these, Twilight Sad, Frightened Rabbit etc. Just hope they don't become Americanised.
