We Were Promised Jetpacks (photo by thomas hermoso)
More blistering, effortlessly great straight head guitar music from Scotland. Which isn't damning with faint praise as much as stating the obvious. We Were Promised Jetpacks (which might just be the best/worst name binary at the moment - inspired and trying to hard all at once) have got a template for sure - partly Postcard jangle, part tight-sprung Blondie rhythms (it's in that insistent tst-tst-tst of the hi-hat) - but much like their peers Frightened Rabbit they transcend their influences with sheer emotional force. There's nothing on release as yet, and their only EP was a freebie given out at gigs which is certainly elusive (if anyone has a copy and wants to trade or whatever then get in touch!) but the few songs that are out there are well worth tracking down. This track, 'Moving Clocks Run Slow,' is over at Paper Thin Walls - reviewed by...yes, Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit.
