We Were Promised Jetpacks
The More I Sleep The Less I Dream

Fifteen years after they formed, these Scottish rockers are still grumbling about The Lack Of Jetpackery. The More I Sleep The Less I Dream, their fourth LP but first for Big Scary Monsters (Blakfish, Minus The Bear), finds We Were Promised Jetpacks turning in another collection of emoish, post-rockish, post-hardcoreish indie anthems. Very much of the Idlewild/Biffy Clyro/The Twilight Sad school.

Unravelling

Sad Scottish indie rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks match up to their label-mates Frightened Rabbit for songs that try to tug on the heartstrings pretty much non-stop. 'Unravelling' is their third record in five years, trying out the kind of soaring, epic songs indie rock bands tend to make as they grow up. They remain similar to their miserable Scottish compatriots while recalling the melodrama of bands like Shearwater.

We Were Promised Jetpacks
These Four Walls

We were. And even though this album is now ten years old we still don't have jetpacks. Instead we have Brexit but it is no comparison. This Scottish band who yearn for the jetpacks roared in with their debut in 2009 a vibrant mixture of emotional post-hardcore, post-rock and melodic Scottish goodness that will appeal to fans of the Twlight Sad and Frightened Rabbit. Barely any copies of the original version made it to stores outside the US so now is your chance to get it.
