Where: FatCat Records
We Were Promised Jetpacks are a band from Scotland and last week they dropped their latest single I Keep It Composed. These guys have already gained a strong following and have made a pretty big name for themselves over their career, so seeing their name pop up in our inbox was quite a surprise. Next month they will be releasing third album Unravelling and once you have a little listen of I Keep It Composed, you will be struggling to keep yourself together.
I Keep It Composed is a track that rounds up everything great about the sound of We Were Promised Jetpacks. The band have a real talent at layering their material and on this track they utilise it perfectly. Waves of guitars performing downplayed riffs and melodies slip seamlessly together alongside a catchy, post-rock bassline and beefy drums that fuses a rhythm section that shows no sign of weakness even after all these years. This track is a steady transition into what sounds like a more mature road for We Were Promised Jetpacks, and it sounds great.
Stream I Keep It Composed below, and look out for the band’s new album Unravelling on October 6thvia FatCat Records. It’s been said to be a turning point for the band and their best yet, so you should probably check it out.
