Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Like fellow Scotsmen Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks bring emotional intensity to the forefront in their immensely appealing rock anthems. Adding nimble, driving rhythms and bristling tension to the mix, they unfold their songs into effortless-seeming choruses imbued with romanticism and pop sensibility.

Review

"Blistering post-punk anthems of the highest pedigree: powerful and tuneful in just the right measures" --Q Magazine

"Their crisp, flighty choruses and sure-footed narratives are bolder and more purposeful than ever before" --Drowned In Sound

This is, without a doubt, the BEST new band and album that I have stumbled across in a loooooooong time!

As a guy in my mid-30's (wife, kids, & job have taken over my life)... it's very frustrating trying to find "new" music that is compelling, original, and meaningful. Equally hard to find an entire album that can be enjoyed from start to finish. These guys have managed to accomplish ALL of these things!

I won't try to overly categorize this band. Suffice it to say that they clearly manage to express some punk-rock influences without "being" overtly punk-rock. The prevailing style of the album revolves around driving anthems that crescendo into beautiful climaxes. They don't seem interested in being or sounding like anyone else in particular. The energy that these guys generate is infectious. And the vocals just seem so sincere that, despite the obvious and unapologetic Scottish accent, it becomes intriguing and makes you WANT to listen more closely.

2 listens and it was over, for me. I was HOOKED! This is the type of band that you can't help wanting to share with others... primarily b/c you just know that your friends will ultimately thank you for it.

Buy 2 copies of this album!!!...(so you'll have an extra copy to give to that person you know, who always finds the best new bands first, but has not heard of these guys, yet!)

Well, it made ME younger anyway, by about 25 years. Driving beats, minor chords, dark sentiments, intense dynamics, sincere vocals, variety of tones within songs, precise and tight breaks... I am very pleased. If the samples here aren't long enough for you to judge, go to that popular Internet video site and look for "Quiet Little Voices."

These guys are the real thing: I heard them the other night in Brooklyn, and they have such energy and intensity... The drummer uses his floor tom-tom a lot to get a booming sound, the bass player has intricate lines, the singer has to step away from the mike as he sings so as not to overpower the sound system, and the lead guitarist adds interesting colors through not only his guitar but also a small xylophone.

I can't wait for their next one.

I stumbled across "We Were Promised Jetpacks" by chance, at my local library. I was intrigued by their name, and glad I was compelled to pick up their album, "These Four Walls." It is so original and fresh. It is rock, but with new vibes, and subtle scottish accents.

"We Were Promised Jetpacks," hails from Glasglow, Scotland, the capital of indie music, and free spirits. Thier lyrics, even the music itself, stripped of words, shows an expert level of care and devotion. "We Were Promised Jetpacks," truly loves music, and one can hear it through their work.

As for "These Four Walls", my personal favorite is "Quiet Little Voices."
All the other songs are phenomenal. The top songs are

Quiet Little Voices

Roll Up Your Sleeves

If you love indie rock, and are looking for relief from the Miley Cyrus mania, or just need your faith in the music industry to be restored, click the big yellow button and buy "These Four Walls", before the mainstream worms its way into your mind.

Like others I heard this band in Hall Pass and immediately bought Quiet Little Voices. However I held off on buying this record because in the clips all the songs sounded the same, a lot of string alternating guitar pickin'. Once I caved in and bought it though I did not regret doing so. Great songs with fantastic builds/climaxes. Dude's voice is awesome and the thick Scottish accent adds a lot of character.

I bought their other albums and didn't like them as much. They don't do as well with extensive production, in my opinion.

I haven't purchased a physical CD in years. I'm glad I did for this album. The album art/liner notes are really well done. The music itself is great. I don't know how I didn't discover this band years ago but I'm now a big fan.

My vinyl copy has a terrible pressing fault at the end of side 2. There's a crackle in the right channel that starts early in the final track and gets very audible as the track progresses. Otherwise the record sounds great! However, the last song is ruined. I contacted Fat Cat records and they weren't interested in helping which is extremely disappointing. The other concern was the download card was placed on top of the vinyl inside the sleeve! Whereever this was pressed, the quality control is appalling. Pity the label wants no part of taking any responsibility for this. I was in touch with Dave Cawley the Director there. He stands alone as the only label that's not tried to resolve a bad pressing and palmed me back to Amazon to resolve. Boo Hoo Fat Cat!

I discovered this band by chance through college radio. To give you an idea of how good I think this album is let me just say that after listening for the first time my first thought afterwards was whether or not I could move to Glasgow just to get a chance to listen to them live in their home town. If you like bands such as Muse, Arcade Fire or Airborne Toxic Event, then you will instantly gravitate towards this band.
