Stream We Were Promised Jetpacks Unravelling (Stereogum Premiere)

Ethan Jacobs | October 3, 2014 - 9:30 am

We’ve already heard two tracks from Scottish indie rockers We Were Promised Jetpack’s third full-length album Unravelling: “I Keep It Composed” and “Safety In Numbers” were tantalizing first tastes of what we can now fully devour. Recorded in Glasgow at Chem19 Studios, Unravelling marks the first LP from the Edinburgh combo since 2011’s In The Pit Of The Stomach and their third collaboration with FatCat Records. The new album finds We Were Promised Jetpacks refining their craft of ferocious and moody rock ‘n’ roll through new approaches to songwriting and, in multi-instrumentalist Stuart McGachan, a new addition to the band. Stream the whole album below.
