These Four Walls by We Were Promised Jetpacks

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.

We Were Promised Jetpacks should probably play Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, or perhaps Jetpac.. Or even try out real life, where Wikipedia shows us that jetpacks do actually exist and thrive in the wild skies. I suppose it's always possible that the name refers to a Christmas promise letdown from their parents in which case I've got more sympathy and can fully understand why they've formed a rousingly passionate indie troup complete with the fashionable uber-Scottish vocals everyone's at nowadays.. I bet they're from fucking Kent or something as well. Later period Idlewild is my best comparison, occasionally a more acceptable Snow Patrol is evoked, while Brian reckons he can hear bits of The Wedding Present in there and he'd know about these things because he's well Straight Gedge. These Four Walls is on CD and vinyl.
