We Were Promised Jetpacks find 'Safety in Numbers'

We Were Promised Jetpacks

(Eoin Carey)

Scottish quintet We Were Promised Jetpacks have spent years refining a sound that’s melodic but muscular. In the process, they’ve made some fairly big waves in the indie rock world. This fall, they’ll be releasing their third LP, Unravelling, on FatCat Records—and it has the potential to make the band some fans in a more mainstream setting.

The track “Safety in Numbers” brings together arena-ready drums, widescreen guitars, and a booming piano part in a way that should make fans of U2 and Coldplay–not to mention the epically bummed-out Scottish indie bands whose legacy the Jetpacks are working in–quite happy.
