New energetic

We were Promised Jetpacks is a young band from Scotland bursting with energy, with exciting momentum, with top-notch drumming and wailing guitars. The lyrics are affecting and vulnerable.

Q Magazine praised the Scottish kids, saying they create “blistering post-punk anthems of the highest pedigree: powerful and tuneful in just the right measures, with lead singer Adam Thompson’s understated vocals keeping proceedings in check just as they threaten to spiral out of control.”
