We Were Promised Jetpacks is part of a triumvirate of fine Scottish sad-sack indie rockers on FatCat that also includes Frightened Rabbit and the Twilight Sad. The Jetpack crew splits the difference between Frightened Rabbit’s straightforward, amped-up singer-songwriter fare and the Twilight Sad’s horizon-spanning epics, and they add their own flavor in the form of math-rock and post-punk flourishes. All those elements are present in “Safety In Numbers,” the excellent lead single from the group’s upcoming album Unraveling. Hear it below.
Unraveling is out this fall on FatCat.
