WE WERE PROMISED JETPACKS
November 23, 2011
Hello fellow music lovers! Andy Gesner and the HIP Video Promo crew are here with an exciting new video from one of Scotland’s very own and HIP favorites —We Were Promised Jetpacks. Beneath each of their stylistic tones and memorable lyrics, you’ll find that this indie-rock band leaves you with a feeling of incredible urgency to hear more of these intricate melodies.
Keeping their roots in the heart of Scotland, the band has made their way into the US by taking the indie-rock scene by a positive surprise. We first introduced you to their outstanding video for “Roll Up Your Sleeves” from the album These Four Walls, and have just recently presented you with the video for “Medicine” from the new album, In the Pit of the Stomach. After touring the US regularly (both headlining and opening for acts like Jimmy Eat World) and being enjoyed by critics, such as Spin, Alternative Press, and Stereogum, the band shows an incredible likelihood to make your jaw drop and your feet stomp.
Following directly on the heels of “Medicine,” the new video for “Human Error” directly follows up with the realistic ideas of the lyrics of the song. Following a group of young people through a night of drinking, making out, and erratic dancing, you find yourself transfixed in a state of horror. However, the sincerity of this video captures your mind and glues your eyes to the screen, making you wonder if you yourself have ever been in such situations. The lyrics transcend the true meaning of what every one believes to be the definition of fun night life: they take you to a place where you think you can’t stand being, but all the while you hope you can’t leave. The song itself is an epic tune that tugs at every musical interest that embodies you, and the video tugs at a deeper meaning. Within “Human Error,” we can see the true captivation that We Were Promised Jetpacks so perfectly creates.
Here at HIP Video, we have worked with FatCat Records on many different videos, and We Were Promised Jetpacks appeal to us music lovers—they’re simply another reason to love music. Their warm notes are strong and compelling, and the lyrics and melodies entangle you completely. The band is currently touring the US, bringing a darker, more seductive side to indie-rock, so be sure to catch their performance at any chance you can get. You won’t want to miss this incredible band, so please be in touch if you’d like to catch them when they come to your town, or if we can hook you up with any copies of In the Pit of the Stomach for your on-air giveaway needs.
